Answer

14- and 6-Hz waves

  • In these waves, the 2 frequencies are intimately intertwined and the complexes occur in bursts.

  • They generally are thought to be clinically insignificant.

  • They occur in healthy children and adolescents. Some claim that they are best seen in referential recordings during sleep. [6]
