Previous research has shown that exposure to circumcerebral weak magnetic fields with different rates of acceleration applied in a counterclockwise rotation around the head was associated with increased estimations of subjective time and as much as a 30% increase in power within the theta range within quantitative electroencephalographic (QEEG) recordings. The largest effect was associated with magnetic fields applied with 20 ms rates of change through each of the successively stimulated… 
LORETA predicts electromagnetic sensitivity and “hearing voices” in a predictable, increasingly prevalent subpopulation: possible QEEG-based differential diagnosis
TLDR
A middle-aged woman who displayed characteristics typical of this population exhibited persistent and conspicuous enhanced power in the low beta-range over the temporal lobes and specific changes in current source densities within the left inferior temporal gyrus and right parahippocampal region.

Global changes of state like DID are all very interesting to deliberate, but such clinical illustrations really don’t correspond to a singular ghost encounter like Tom’s. The configuration of an ASC

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.
POWER INCREASES WITHIN THE GAMMA RANGE OVER THE FRONTAL AND OCCIPITAL REGIONS DURING ACUTE EXPOSURES TO CEREBRALLY COUNTERCLOCKWISE ROTATING MAGNETIC FIELDS WITH SPECIFIC DERIVATIVES OF CHANGE
TLDR
The results suggest topical application of specific spatial-temporal configurations of magnetic fields may affect the recursive creation of the rostral-caudal waves of cohesive fields that might produce consciousness.
Enhanced Power within a Specific Band of Theta Activity in One Person While Another Receives Circumcerebral Pulsed Magnetic Fields: A Mechanism for Cognitive Influence at a Distance?
TLDR
The results suggest that an appropriate altered state of one brain can effect specific predictable frequencies of the electroencephalographic activity of another distant brain which is genetically related.
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.

TLDR
It is proposed that the specific loops give the content of cognition, and a nonspecific loop gives the temporal binding required for the unity of cognitive experience.
The Effects of Low-Frequency Environmental-Strength Electromagnetic Fields on Brain Electrical Activity: A Critical Review of the Literature
TLDR
Reports dealing with the stimulus-response relationship between low-level, low-frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and changes in brain electrical activity permit assessment of the hypothesis that EMFs are detected by the body via the process of sensory transduction, which has been demonstrated in animal and human subjects.
Exposure to ELF magnetic and ELF-modulated radiofrequency fields: the time course of physiological and cognitive effects observed in recent studies (2001-2005).
TLDR
A number of variables that are not often considered in human bioelectromagnetics studies, such as personality, individual differences and the specific laterality of ELF MF and mobile phone exposure over the brain are discussed.
Fronto-Parietal Evoked Potential Synchronization is Increased During Mental Rotation
TLDR
It is suggested that the increased synchronization between prefrontal and parieto-occipital regions may be associated with the working memory components of the task, while the left frontal to right parietal synchronization may represent the increased interaction between these regions thought to occur in a variety of visuo-motor tasks.
