Magnetic fields prevent editor from talking (w/ video)
April 12, 2011


(PhysOrg.com) -- By holding an electromagnet close to a personís skull, researchers can alter the neuron activity in the personís brain. This technique, called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), can be used for a variety of reasons, such as improving visual memory, impairing the brainís activity to make moral judgments, and treating ADHD and severe depression. To demonstrate the kind of immediate and powerful impact that TMS can have, New Scientist editor Roger Highfield tried to recite the nursery rhyme "Humpty Dumpty," but found that his speech was interrupted by a magnetic field.

That's very interesting. It made him sound like he had a mouthful of pudding and a glass of Guinness.

I have had both an MRI and a CAT scan or two ....... and I don't recall their electromagnetisms .... improved my visual memory ...... or impaired my brainís activity to make moral judgments.

And I don't believe I ever had ADHD or severe depression, but iffen I did, those scans apparently never helped nor exacerbated my problem(s).

But I do recall that one of those "scans" really pissed me off and got me somewhat irate, ...... which might be akin to an "impairment to make moral judgments", ..... but it wasn't the "scanning" that did it, ....... it was those dumbassed technicians/nurses who left me strapped inside that machine for at least 20 minutes while they apparently went "on break".
