It's called TI Stimulation (at least that's what we call it now) Article It allows deep brain stimulation without stimulating any overlying areas of the brain. It works by getting 2 electric fields (it may be easier to understand if you think of the electric fields as waves) to interefere with each other. Each electric field's frequency is too high to stimulate neurons. When the 2 fields meet, they temporally interefere, to create an 'envelope' a
GETTING KNOWLEDGE Part 1: Reflecting as I now do on my 65 year reading life from 1949 to 2014, I found Darwin’s way of reading a book of interest. He “often annotated heavily, prepared his own index of interesting passages, broke a book in half at the binding if it was too heavy and stopped to write about it in his notebooks.” He showed, as Howard Gruber puts it: “a man at work using books as tools for getting knowledge, not as exhibitions of knowledge already crystallised”.1 Gillian Beer characterizes Darwin’s reading style, as “full of questions and exclamations, enthusiastic rebutta
