Memory is a cognitive process which aids in learning. The pschycological and neurological brain states related to memory can be assessed with the help of brain mapping technique EEG. In this paper, we will study these brain states and their modulation with the help of brain therapeutic exercise using binaural beat stimulation called brain entrainment. This training of brain by audio stimulation can alter the brain impulses and can be used to improve working memory performance by increasing theta (4-8 Hz) band. Here we used the upper alpha frequency of 10.7 Hz to train the brain. Subsequently EEG analysis is used to observe the enhancement during active states along with psychological tests to support the results.
