EEG studies: The electrical activity of the brain of the normal mock operated restrained rats was predominantly rapid with varying voltages (50-200 [micro]V) but no high voltage spike could be seen in these animals, either spontaneously or when provoked by flickering light and the frequency of alpha and beta waves were normal.
In a 1996 study, co-workers given a 15-minute massage while sitting in a chair had lower levels of alpha and beta waves - indicating more mental alertness - than colleagues who simply sat quietly in their chairs and tried to relax.
