Assessment of the Effects of Geomagnetic and Solar Activity on Bioelectrical Processes in the Human Brain Using a Structural Function
TLDR
The effects of sharp variations in geomagnetic and solar activity at high latitudes on human brain bioelectrical activity were studied using a multichannel EEG structural function and can be used to evaluate the integral reaction of the brain as a unified system to the actions of heliogeophysical factors.
Similar Spectral Power Densities Within the Schumann Resonance and a Large Population of Quantitative Electroencephalographic Profiles: Supportive Evidence for Koenig and Pobachenko
TLDR
The results confirm the measurements reported by earlier researchers that demonstrated unexpected similarities in the spectral patterns and strengths of electromagnetic fields generated by the human brain and the earth-ionospheric cavity.
Billions of Human Brains Immersed Within a Shared Geomagnetic Field: Quantitative Solutions and Implications for Future Adaptations
TLDR
Quantitative solutions indicated that the intensity of the "transcerebral" field produced from all human brains within the geomagnetic field is the same order of magnitude as the values associated with cognitive processes and altered expressions of proteins within the individual brain, which could meet one of the criteria for a holographic-like phenomenon.
Congruence of Energies for Cerebral Photon Emissions, Quantitative EEG Activities and ~5 nT Changes in the Proximal Geomagnetic Field Support Spin-based Hypothesis of Consciousness
TLDR
Measurements of the quantitative changes in photon emissions, electroencephalographic activity, and alterations in the proximal geomagnetic field during successive periods when a subject sitting in the dark imagined white light suggested that spin energies can accommodate the interactions between protons, electrons, and photons and the action potentials associated with intention, consciousness, and entanglement.
Experimental Elicitation of an Out of Body Experience and Concomitant Cross-Hemispheric Electroencephalographic Coherence
Brief exposure to a counterclockwise global externally applied magnetic field generated from an array of 64 solenoids designed to affect the cerebral fields associated with the left and right
Cerebral Activity and Source Profiles Accompanying the Process of Non-Locality
TLDR
It is suggested that experiences of non-locality involve confluence within the right parahippocampal region and are translated for their personal and linguistic equivalents within specific left hemispheric structures.
Case report: A prototypical experience of ‘poltergeist’ activity, conspicuous quantitative electroencephalographic patterns, and sLORETA profiles – suggestions for intervention
TLDR
The striking quantitative electroencephalography, sLORETA results, and experimental elicitation of similar subjective experiences in a middle-aged woman who has been distressed by these classic phenomena that began after a head injury suggest people displaying these experiences and possible anomalous energies can be viewed clinically and potentially treated.
Simulated Effects of Sudden Increases in Electromagnetic Activity on Deviations in Random Electron Tunnelling Behaviour Associated with Cognitive Intention
Reliable evidence from the Jahn-Dunne studies conducted over several decades indicated that human proximity can affect the dynamics of certain processes that strongly depend upon “random” processes.

INCREASED FEELINGS OF THE SENSED PRESENCE AND INCREASED GEOMAGNETIC ACTIVITY AT THE TIME OF THE EXPERIENCE DURING EXPOSURES TO TRANSCEREBRAL WEAK COMPLEX MAGNETIC FIELDS
TLDR
The results suggest the culturally and historically ubiquitous phenomena of sensed presences are generated by right hemispheric processes that once enhanced by a variety of stimuli, including weak complex magnetic fields, can be encouraged by increased global geomagnetic activity.
Schumann Resonances, a plausible biophysical mechanism for the human health effects of Solar
A large number of studies have identified significant physical, biological and health effects associated with changes in Solar and Geomagnetic Activity (S-GMA). Variations in solar activity,
Attempts to Simulate the Association between Geomagnetic Activity and Spontaneous Seizures in Rats Using Experimentally Generated Magnetic Fields
TLDR
In three separate experiments, chronic epileptic male rats were exposed to experimental magnetic fields whose intensities were either constant or varied, and only exposure to a field with a constant intensity appeared to inhibit occurrence of the seizures.
Effect of magnetic micropulsations on the biological systems — A bioenvironmental study
TLDR
The North orientation appeared to induce inhibition of brain electrical activity and associated neurochemical and biochemical changes, whereas the East orientation showed a response of calm, blissful alertness.
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
Enhanced hypnotic suggestibility following application of burst-firing magnetic fields over the right temporoparietal lobes: a replication.
TLDR
The results suggest that attribution of symptomatic changes following exposures to weak, extremely low frequency magnetic fields, to placebo effects may not be correct and fields whose signatures contain biorelevant information may directly affect the neurocognitive processes that are associated with hypnotizability.
