Hi Forrest, That's an interesting question. I can definitely answer the first part in which you asked for the frequencies for brainwaves. Human brainwaves are often discerned into 4 broad spectral bands of clinical interest. Those bands are listed below with the frequency range associated with each : 1) Delta Waves : 0 - 4 HZ 2) Theta Waves : 4 - 8 HZ 3) Alpha Waves : 8 - 12 Hz 4) Beta Waves : above 12 Hz Not everyone agrees on the exact boundaries of these rhythms. The second part of your question which was whether or not there was a program or such for the computer that could generate these tones. I assume you are meaning this in terms of generating these tones as audio. Such tones could be produced in this way very easily, however you would not hear them as the lower limit of human hearing is 20 Hz. I hope this answered your inquiry...thanks for the question...
