Alpha, Beta Brainwaves Differ in Those With Autism A new study shows that brain waves in people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) differ from those in people without ASD. The findings show that ASD individuals exhibit fewer beta and alpha waves in certain regions of the brain as well as irregular patterns in the frontal lobe. Beta brainwaves are higher frequency waves that dominate when we feel alert, attentive, and are intensely focused. Alpha waves are slower frequency waves that are predominant during a waking restful state. For the study, researchers at the University of Malaysia Sarawak compared the brainwave patterns of ten individuals with ASD to those of ten typical individuals to see if they could identify any differences in brain waves among the participants with and without the disorder.
