The biology of dreaming o one would normally consider David Maurice, Ph.D., professor of ocular physiology in the Department of Ophthalmology at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, a revolutionary. Nevertheless, he has reignited a decades-long controversy that could spark a revolutionary re-evaluation of an entire field of behavioral research. Dr. Maurice has developed a startling new line of scientific inquiry that, when added to other findings, could change our understanding of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and the nature of dreams. What Maurice has done is to suggest an alternative explanation for the phenomenon known as REM sleep, the stage in which the eyes rapidly move and most dreams occur. "Without REM," Maurice told 21stC, "our corneas would starve and suffocate while we are asleep with our eyes closed." Maurice's interest in REM began a few years ago. "What is at stake here is a theory of dreams that is scientifically valid," Dr. Interpretation vs. observation Drs. No final answer in sight Neil B.

Brainwave Entrainment for Lucid Dreams Brainwave Entrainment for Lucid Dreams (or just really cool experiences) Of all the things I have researched about lucid dreaming, brainwave entrainment has been the most interesting for me. Brainwave entrainment is creating binaural beats to cause your brainwaves to move towards a specific frequency. Human brainwaves are most often found between 0 and 30Hz. Since the human ear is not capable of hearing these frequencies they must be simulated. What does all of this have to do with lucid dreaming? 0.5 - 4Hz are delta waves - Deep sleep occurs here.4 - 8Hz are theta waves - Drowsiness and first stages of sleep.8 - 14Hz are alpha waves - A relaxed feeling, but still aware of your environment.14 - 30Hz are beta waves - You are very alert and focused in these frequencies. The theory is that if an applied stimulus of a certain frequency is listened to, your brainwaves will follow it. How I use this to induce lucid dreams is setting up a preset pattern with the BrainWave Generator. 1. 2. 3. bedtime calculator Les Ondes ALPHA Les ondes alpha…Voilà un sujet que j’aime bien aborder ! Avant de commencer, vous devez d’abord comprendre les blocs de construction avec lesquels nous allons travailler. (Je remet mon blousson de physicien…) Notre cerveau produit constamment des impulsions électriques. Ces courants d’électricité, ou ondes cérébrales, sont mesurés en amplitude et fréquence. C’est vers 1924 que le psychiatre allemand Hans Berger, auteur d’un livre sur les phénomènes télépathiques, Psyché, décida de mettre en évidence ces ondes de la pensée auxquelles il croit fermement. Le premier phénomène mis en valeur est l’onde alpha. Cette onde, d’une fréquence de 8 à 13 cycles par seconde (hertz) en moyenne, a une amplitude de l’ordre de 100 microvolts. Entre-temps, Berger découvrait les ondes « bêta » de fréquence plus grande (entre 13 et 100 hertz) et d’amplitude plus faible (10 à 50 microvolts). Les progrès de l’électro-encéphalographie (E.E.G.) permirent de mettre en valeur par la suite d’autres rythmes :

The Epidemic Detectives: The Hunt for the Source of Germany's E. Coli Outbreak - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International The eeriest thing of all, according to Rolf Stahl, is the way patients change. "Their awareness becomes blurred, they have problems finding words and they don't quite know where they are," says Stahl. And then there is this surprising aggressiveness. "We are dealing with a completely new clinical picture," he notes. Stahl, a 62-year-old kidney specialist, has been the head of the Third Medical Clinic and Polyclinic at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) for almost 18 years. "But none of us doctors has ever experienced anything quite like this," he says. The bacterium that is currently terrifying the country is an enterohemorrhagic strain of the bacterium Escherichia coli (EHEC), a close relative of harmless intestinal bacteria, but one that produces the dangerous Shiga toxin. 'The Situation Is Deteriorating Dramatically' But Stahl only sees the most severe cases, those in which EHEC also attacks the blood, kidneys and brain. Impressive Detective Work Extremely Rare
