      Galvanic Vestibular Stimulation and tACS phosphenes effect on dreams (idea for expediment)

      SHAKE THE DREAM WORLD
      Idea is test GVS triggered in REM sleep to test its influence to dream

      Some info about GVS
      https://brmlab.cz/project/brain_hacking/gvs

      Hard to predict effect but could be interesting and even can theoreticly lead to OOBE experince on awakening.

      Idea is test tACS triggered in REM sleep to test its influence to dream
      *tACS over visual cortex

      When i test tACS for gamma stimulation of prefrontal cortex highher intesitis or elctrodes close to eyes caused visul phosphenes ,flashes of white light .For this type of stimulation i used pamateres below treashold of appearence of pohosphnes but make my think what effect will they have on dream.

      Phosphnes caused in supraorbital stimulation (above eyes) be porbably similar to normal light from eyes but it may be also intersting to test it .
      Better will be stimulate visual cortex because this stimulation be after thalamus and influnce cortex directly it be very hard/imposible for brain to filter it out like normal light from eyes.
      Its imposibble to predict effect it can be some light flashes or it can destroy dream .

      Update:
      It seems tahat tACS over visual cortex cause phosphnes based on retina so my hypothesis was wrong.Study use large electrodes it may worth try use small electrodes if they cause phosphenes only in part of visual field.

      Hi ATA.

      As a fellow contributor to the 40 hz thread, I could not help wondering if you followed on from your ideas and experiments, namely:

      I presume you were hoping any phosphenes (during gamma stimulation) might be incorporated into your dream as a type of dreamsign during REM, If I'm correct?

      Have you obtained any results since this post?

      Dream sign is one of possibilities

      I not try it yet i also stop working on "40hz stimulation" for now , too much other projects.
