Brief Cerebral Applications of Weak, Physiologically-patterned Magnetic Fields Decrease Psychometric Depression and Increase Frontal Beta Activity in Normal Subjects
TLDR
Brief exposures to weak, physiologically-patterned magnetic fields that can be generated by contemporary computer systems produced reliable changes in QEEG activity and were even reflected in relatively insensitive psychometric indicators in normal individuals.
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.
Facilitation of Declarative Memory and Congruent Brain States by Applications of Weak, Patterned Magnetic Fields: The Future of Memory Access?
Modern communication and electronic technology have produced a complex secondary electromagnetic environment within which we are all immersed. Ultimately patterns will be generated that are
The physical bases to consciousness: Implications of convergent quantifications
TLDR
Predictions from purely physical bases for consciousness with respect to non-local excess correlations, representation of cerebral information within space, and the transposition of photon energy from recoil values within the brain could generate novel experimental approaches to the class of phenomena historically described as “consciousness”.
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.
Persistent Improvements in the Quantitative Electroencephalographic (QEEG) Profile of a Patient Diagnosed With Toxic Encephalopathy by Weekly Application of Multifocal Magnetic Fields Generated by the QEEG of a Normal Person
TLDR
It is suggested that applying precise spatially distributed magnetic field equivalents matched for each EEG sensor through solenoids with microTesla intensities may be able to normalize aberrant electrophysiological activity and to improve cognitive deficits.
Neural Tissues Filter Electromagnetic Fields: Investigating Regional Processing of Induced Current in Ex vivo Brain Specimens
TLDR
Investigating the capacities of ex vivo neural tissue to process and filter induced current generated by naturally occurring and laboratory-controlled electromagnetic fields indicates that neural tissues filter electromagnetic fields non-randomly.
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.

The Electromagnetic Induction of Mystical and Altered States within the Laboratory
The human brain is the locus of all human experiences. The substantial microstructural and neuroelectrical differences between the two cerebral hemispheres predicts two major classes of mystical
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
Entrainment of Stage 2 Sleep Spindles by Weak, Transcerebral Magnetic Stimulation in an “Epileptic” Woman
TLDR
The results suggest that some states of consciousness, particularly those associated with the “epilepsy spectrum disorder” may be more sensitive to entrainment or “synchronization” by weak complex magnetic fields whose temporal structures are designed to simulate natural brain activity.
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.
Striking EEG Profiles from Single Episodes of Glossolalia and Transcendental Meditation
TLDR
Two illustrated instances have been recorded of the occurrence of spikes within the temporal lobe only during protracted intermittent episodes of glossolalia by a member of a pentecostal sect, commensurate with the hypothesis that religious experiences are natural correlates of temporal lobe transients that can be detected by routine EEG measures.

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.
Anatomical origin of déjà vu and vivid 'memories' in human temporal lobe epilepsy.
TLDR
The mental phenomena observed in epileptic patients with electrodes stereotaxically implanted into different brain areas for seizure localization prior to surgical treatment is considered, finding that the amygdala was involved in 73% of cases, the anterior hippocampus in 83% and the temporal neocortex in 88%.
