Brainwave Entrinment is amazing, you can choose how to feel, just through music!
When the brain is presented with a rhythmic stimulus, the rhythm is reproduced in the brain in the form of these electrical impulses. If the rhythm becomes fast and consistent enough, it can start to resemble the natural internal rhythms of the brain, called brainwaves. When this happens, the brain responds by synchronizing its own electric cycles to the same rhythm.
This means if you want to get sleepy, you only had to put a 4Hz sound pattern, and your body automatically adapts to this rythim/ sound, it aplies to every emotion or internal state :D
Good thing: It gives the basic information of this topic, with images and clear concepts
