Brain as transmitter

  • Updated 5 years ago

The human brain is similar to a radio transmitter, but low freq range (0.5 to about 40 Hz usable) and very low amplitude. I've attached a link to a YouTube I did that shows electrical waveforms from each of 19 measured brain areas. It is then converted to a datatable, then to 3-D images of electrical networks in the brain, associated with cognitive functions....similar to the bandscope on the Flex, but you can actually discern ideas about brain functioning from the brainwave, I keep trying to read more into the freq display on the Flex. Still, interesting comparison, if you're interested.

Interesting area

One of our research projects worked on a defense project to use brainwaves to trigger aircraft firing mechanisms. Easily beat a manual pulling a trigger or pushing a button by many MS. NDA on other details

The problem is reliability. When a pilot goes into combat the adrenaline rush and excitement make systems like this eratic.
