I keep meaning to a proper post on this, but have finally been stimulated to do something rather than continue to postpone a really thorough one. The Dreem headband is an amazing device, both for the quality of its sleep tracking and for its function of enhancing slow-wave sleep; there's a ton of science on this kind of closed-loop auditory entrainment tech using systems built for experimental use by scientists that are not available as consumer devices, and some reports on the Dreem specifically: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnhum.2018.00088/full (This one actually on the Dreem). https://dreem.com/assets/files/White_Paper_DREEM.pdf (This also on the Dreem, with additional unpublished data from their studies of users in the field). http://dx.doi.org/10.3389/fnsys.2014.00208 http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/17461391.2013.819384 http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/sleep/zsx003 https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-017-02170-3 http://www.jneurosci.org/content/35/17/6630 http://www.cell.com/neuron/fulltext/S0896-6273(13)00230-4 https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnsys.2014.00208/full PMIDs 25389394 28337134 (Some of the above links and PMIDs are probably redundant to eahc other; my apologies). Slow-wave sleeep appears to be particularly important for clearing out beta-amyloid at night, although the route and mechanism continues to be debated.
