EEG Frequency Bands
Based on Thompson and Thompson (2015) for BCIA Neurofeedback Certification
Subjective Characteristics of Frequency Bands
Most EEG power or signal energy falls within the 0-20 Hz frequency range. Hertz (Hz) is an abbreviation for cycles per second. The dominant frequency is the frequency with the greatest amplitude. It is at least 13 Hz in awake adults. EEG power is measured in microvolts or picowatts.
