The study indicated interval differences regarding exacerbation, times, EEG monitoring duration, basic frequency, presence of slow-waves and beta waves, spike discharges, and severity of EEG arrhythmia between patients with and without EBBs, but this study indicated no significance ( P > 0.
For instance, the presence of beta waves correlates with excitement, focus and stress.
Beta waves (13-21 cps) are associated with thinking and focusing, or sustaining attention, whereas high beta waves (20-32 cps) are indicative of hyperactivity and anxiety.
But it is fine when trying to detect the activity, called beta waves, that indicates attention.
