DIY Neuro stimulation

Reposted from my other blog 2009…

I think the discussion around Michael Persinger’s God helmet experiment was really interesting. I had to act on this and investigate the realm of experimental psychology further. I got in touch with him to ask some questions about the technology and the experimental process. I asked if I could make an array electromagnetic coils with oscillating magnetic field could generate similar effects. Which he seemed to think was feasible.  I decided to make a modified version of the god helmet to work with my Enki interface.

Here is a view my DIY neuro-stimulation device there are 4 coils which oscillate with magnetic frequencies, I have been using MAX MSP to drive these using electrical pulses derived from the electric fish. The magnetic coils are fitted to an elastic band which fits over the head, to the back of the head is a junction box, and the two coil arrays sit at the side of the head near the temporal lobes.
