The Science and Benefits of Delta Waves

Associated with the deepest levels of sleep, delta waves are something of an enigma. First identified in the 1900s neurophysicist William Grey Walter, who was inspired by Hans Berger’s electroencephalograph, or EEG machine which enabled the study of the brain during sleep.
