One week of solitary confinement of prison inmates produced significant changes in their EEG frequency and visual evoked potentials (VEP) that parallel those reported in laboratory studies of sensory deprivation. EEG frequency declined in a nonlinear manner over the period. VEP latency, which decreased with continued solitary confinement, was shorter for these 5s than for control 5s whose VEP latency did not change over the same period. Experimental 5s who had been in prison longer had shorter… CONTINUE READING
