It is exposure to light pulsing at 40 hertz (40 times per second) designed to synchronise a particular type of electrical activity in the brain known as gamma waves.
High gamma activity is associated with good memory and learning. In situations where we are under great pressure and need to provide greater performance, gamma activity in the brain increases.
Recent studies suggests that gamma could even slow certain medical conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
