Background & Aims: Synchronization in activated regions of cortical networks affect the brain’s frequency response, which has been associated with a wide range of states and abilities, including memory. This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of brainwave synchronization in beta band by binaural beats on improvement of visuospatial working memory in subjects with borderline personality disorder traits.
Materials & Methods: The present quasi-experimental study designed with a pre-test and post-test control group. In this regard, 30 college student with Borderline personality traits were chosen by borderline personality inventory (BPI), and randomly divided into two groups of experimental and control(each N=15). All subjects were evaluated with the Corsi Blocks Test in pre-test and post-test stages. The participants in experiment group received 15 Hz binaural beats for 12 minutes. The data were analyzed with ANCOVA.
Results: Results demonstrated that 15 Hz binaural beats produce significant improvements in visuospatial working memory in subjects with borderline personality disorder traits (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Due to the importance of working memory in many daily activities and its deficit in borderline personality disorder, using 15 Hz binaural beats can promote visuospatial working memory in this subjects.
