• light
  • The influence of rhythmic sounds and drums to enter altered states of consciousness is used in different indigenous tribes (see Shamanic music), as well as optical stimulation produced by the flickering light of camp fires or pressing lightly on the eyeballs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Effects
  • Cross-coupled effects of repeated vestibular and optokinetic stimulations on the dynamics of the vestibulo-ocular and optokinetic reflexes in the cat. (biomedsearch.com)
  • emotional
  • METHODS: To investigate if this structure processes emotional information, and whether it depends on motor demands, we recorded subthalamic local field potentials in 16 patients with Parkinson's disease using deep brain stimulation electrodes. (mendeley.com)
  • These findings confirm the specific involvement of the STN in emotional processes in human, which may underlie the behavioural changes observed in patients with deep brain stimulation. (mendeley.com)
  • In 1956, W. Gray Walter published the first results on thousands of test subjects comparing flicker stimulation with the subjective emotional feelings it produced. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • BACKGROUND: The subthalamic nucleus (STN) is an efficient target for treating patients with Parkinson's disease as well as patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) using high frequency stimulation (HFS). (mendeley.com)
  • Results
  • By incorporating a neurofeedback system that combines photic stimulation with EEG therapy, the unique system achieves rapid improvement in mental and physical states, yielding long-lasting, permanent results. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • With the development of the EEG, Adrian and Matthews published their results showing that the alpha rhythm could be "driven" above and below the natural frequency with photic stimulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Open
  • This is called "open loop" stimulation, or free-running entrainment, and is not contingent on monitoring brainwaves in any way. (wikipedia.org)
  • electrical
  • These investigations are aimed at studying the influence of the electrical stimulation of the VIth nucleus (abducens nucleus) on responses of lateral geniculate cells in rabbits. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Histological reconstructions of recording electrode tracts suggest that cells which responded to electrical stimulation were located in a narrow band lying dorsally relative to the LGN. (biomedsearch.com)
  • This "stroboscopic photo-stimulation produces "photic driving", the alpha type of brain electrical activity associated with an altered state in which people are susceptible to suggestion. (wikipedia.org)
