    A study was carried out to analyze how the Zeno-inverse Zeno transition takes place when the frequency of observations is changed. It was found that both a quantum Zeno effect (QZE) or an inverse quantum Zeno effect (IZE) can be obtained, depending on the features of the interaction Hamiltonian.
