3 Must See TED Talks on Lucid Dreaming I can’t think of a easier way to introduce lucid dreaming—in all of its wonder, complexity and variety—than by watching these 3 inspiring TEDx talks. All told, we’re talking about 35 minutes. Enjoy. 1. Thomas Peisel. (12 minutes) First up, we have Thom Peisel at TEDxLowerEastSide in New York in late 2013. 2. 3.

Acoustic Brain Research | en français “ABR” Image – © 2012 Tom Kenyon.All rights reserved. An Important Note About Research Documents: Please Read First The articles, reports, and studies in this section are being shared in the spirit of offering a free-flow of information. They are essentially educational in nature and will hopefully give you a glimpse into the workings of the brain in response to sound and music, as well as an understanding of Acoustic Brain Research (ABR) psychoacoustic technology. But before you take a look, I feel it is imperative that I discuss some of the basic points regarding scientific research. There are essentially three types of information in science — Anecdotal reports from individuals, Pilot Studies (sometimes called Anecdotal Studies), and Controlled Studies. The scientific method requires quantification or a means of measuring. The second type of information in scientific inquiry is the Pilot Study. I want to be very clear here. Tom Kenyon, M.A. These primary categories are:

Microsoft Popfly Brain-Controlled Wheelchair Hello! A lot of people have written us saying they are building a Brain-Controlled Wheelchair, and that's great! We look forward to helping you get through the hard parts, but some of you won't need any help (maybe). What we want from you (all of you) are pictures! Or at least a message saying "Hey, we're doing it and we're in (location)" so we can get all excited. Thank you and Good Luck! This Instructable will show how to make a Brain-Controlled Electric Wheelchair, so that a person can become mobile without moving their body. This could be useful for people who are paralysed, and are unable to control parts of their body enough to physically activate the joystick of an electric wheelchair. The parts of this system include an electric wheelchair, a laptop computer, an Arduino, an interface circuit, an EEG headset, and a collection of ready-made and custom software. The interface circuit connects between the Arduino's digital pins and the joystick of the wheelchair.

TIME TO WALK THROUGH THE DOOR AND LIBERATE YOUR LIFE? Walk Score A Novel Mu Rhythm-based Brain Computer Interface Design that uses a Programmable System on Chip Ditch the Buzzer: 4 New Futuristic Alarm Clocks for Optimal Sleep This article is part 2 of my sleep tech round up for 2016. This new burst of alarm clocks on the scene is important– because let’s be honest, our use of electronics (tablets, smartphones, TVs etc) dominates our bedrooms and pollutes our sleep. I struggle with this too. Sometimes I win, and admittedly, sometimes Netflix wins. But, hey, if we can’t get the electronics out of the bedroom, maybe one more device will save us! Note: I haven’t personally tested these devices, so these are not reviews so much as curated research and my thoughts on what makes them worth our while. Bedside Sleep Tracker calls itself a bedside sleep tracker. The alarm also sounds nice: 15 programmable tones that gently awaken you near your targeted time when you are in a light stage of sleep. Of course, my iPhone has some pretty nice wake up tones, too.

So can zapping the brain really induce lucid dreams? TL;DR answer: it’s beginning to look pretty likely. In case you missed it, in 2014 researchers in Germany confirmed that zapping the brain of subjects can routinely induce lucid dreams. (By zapping, I mean applying a low voltage current stimulation to the scalp). She looks well rested. Now, a start up called Aladdin wants to make this technology available for the public. As reported in a recent in-depth interview of CEO Craig Wess of Aladdin, on the Lucid Sage Podcast, this new headband may have perfected the recipe for lucid dreaming on command. Sounds promising, but unfortunately Aladdin just cancelled their Kickstarter when it looked likely the weren’t going to get their funding. Quick and dirty review of lucid dreaming stimulation research Let’s back up, and look at the research again. See that red spot in lucid image? It’s the closest thing to a trigger for “lucidity” yet: the technical method is tACS, or transcranial alternating current. Philosophically, the implications are bold. Dr.
