Quantitative electroencephalographic activity over the left and right frontal, temporal, parietal, and occipital lobes was obtained on 4 successive weeks in 12 subjects before they were exposed cerebrally for 30 min to one of two configurations of weak complex magnetic fields or to a sham-field condition. The two configurations were Shakti (c Todd Murphy) and the set of 4 solenoids (Koren boxes) generating a burst-firing magnetic field through the temporal lobes. Compared to baseline… 
Exceptional Experiences Following Exposure to a Sham “God Helmet”: Evidence for Placebo, Individual Difference, and Time of Day Influences
It has been claimed that applying weak complex electromagnetic patterns to the temporal lobes in a “God Helmet” stimulates the intrusion of right-hemispheric processes to awareness, resulting in
Can the 8-Coil Shakti Alter Subjective Emotional Experience? A Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study
TLDR
The Shakti's “amygdala signal” had no effect on the emotive response to images in this study, and additional investigations examining the effects of weak and complex magnetic fields on various aspects of perception and cognition are warranted.
Validating New Technologies to Treat Depression, Pain and the Feeling of Sentient Beings: A Reply to “Neuroscience for the Soul”
TLDR
A Hegelian approach to this delay of development and impedance provides a context through which the ultimate synthesis and application of this technology may be accommodated in the near future.
Non-Pharmacological Tools for Neuroenhancement Neuroethical Issues
TLDR
The aim of this review is to give a short overview of different aspects of the most widely used non-pharmacological techniques that can be used for enhancement purposes and state the most relevant ethical issues related to the safety, influence on character, justice and autonomy of their us.
Neurotheology: Neuroscience of the Soul
Neurotheology encompasses areas of research that investigate the neurological factors involved in religious conviction and sensations (religiosity). Since the 1970s case studies of patients with
Religious Experience
The primary aim of this seminar is to help participants construct a comprehensive and sensitive interpretation of religious experience. A wide range of disciplinary perspectives will prove useful,

Intermittent Burst-Firing Weak (1 microTesla) Magnetic Fields Reduce Psychometric Depression in Patients Who Sustained Closed Head Injuries: A Replication and Electroencephalographic Validation
TLDR
Following treatment, the frequency of complex partial epileptic-like experiences decreased significantly only for the 7 patients who received the bilateral stimulation over the temporal lobes, and Quantitative bipolar electroencephalographic measurements over the occipital, prefrontal, and temporal regions showed increased power within the 16-Hz to 18-Hz range 6 wk.
Circumcerebral Application of Weak Complex Magnetic Fields with Derivatives and Changes in Electroencephalographic Power Spectra within the Theta Range: Implications for States of Consciousness
TLDR
The results suggest that very complex magnetic fields with the appropriate temporal parameters rotated around and within brain space can interact with the cerebral processes, measured as specific bands of frequencies, generating consciousness.
Experimental Simulation of a Haunt Experience and Elicitation of Paroxysmal Electroencephalographic Activity by Transcerebral Complex Magnetic Fields: Induction of a Synthetic “Ghost”?
TLDR
The results of this experiment suggest that controlled simulation of these pervasive phenomena within the laboratory is possible and that this experimental protocol may help discern the physical stimuli that evoke their occurrence in nature.
Differential Entrainment of Electroencephalographic Activity by Weak Complex Electromagnetic Fields
The hypothesis was tested that compensatory susceptibility to electro-encephalographic driving and entrainment by weak (1 microT) time-varying, externally applied complex magnetic fields would occur
Magnetic stimulation in the treatment of partial seizures.
TLDR
Three randomly selected patients with partial seizures in whom application of an external artificial magnetic field of low intensity produced a substantial attenuation of seizure frequency during an observation period extending from 10 to 14 months demonstrate that artificial magnetic treatment may be a valuable adjunctive procedure in the management of partial seizures.
Modification of Semantic Memory in Normal Subjects by Application Across the Temporal Lobes of a Weak (1 Microt) Magnetic Field Structure that Promotes Long-Term Potentiation in Hippocampal Slices
TLDR
Normal, right-handed human volunteers listened to a 5-min story and were exposed to 15 min of magnetic pulses whose temporal structure has been shown to enhance long-term potentiation in hippocampal slices, suggesting that contemporary technology may have the capability to access fundamental algorithms of the neuronal activity asso...
Weak, but Complex Pulsed Magnetic Fields May Reduce Depression following Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
There was a significant improvement of depression and reduction of phobias while physical symptoms and other complaints were not changed, and four depressed patients who had sustained traumatic brain injuries received 30 min. of weak magnetic fields across the temporal lobes once per week for 5 weeks.

TLDR
It is suggested that the timing of the presentation of patterned magnetic fields may differentially affect the representations of habit strength and drive within the consolidating memory trace.
