The neuro-science of Flow Part 1: Neuro-electricity

The neuro-science of Flow Part 1: Neuro-electricity

The Alpha-Theta border area of around 8 Hz is recognised as being the  signature wave state for flow states. This is unsurprising given that one of the standout hallmarks of flow is the absence of conscious thought. Many people have defined their "flow state" experience as a zone where things happen automatically, so it stands to reason that it occurs at the Alpha-Theta brain wave, the border between the conscious and the subconscious.
