Abstract

the electroencephalogram (EEG) is an acquiring of the electrical fluctuationsthat occur in the brain, generated simply by positioning electrodes over the scalp withamplification of the electrical potential produced. The actual EEG indicates three primarytypes of wave, named alpha, beta and delta, which are distinct based on their rate ofproduction. Data has been collected from twenty five subjects using BrainMarker EEGhardware and software. Brainwaves were measured, focusing on the Alpha and Betabands to measure subjects’ calmness while listening to Quran recitation compared withrelaxing music. The result showed that higher alpha magnitudes were generated duringlistening to Quran recitation.
