      New method induces lucidity 77% of the time

      Interesting new study hot of the presses

      http://www.nature.com/neuro/journal/...l/nn.3719.html

      And an easier to read article talking about that study:
      Seeking Roots of Consciousness, Scientists Make Dreamers Self-Aware

      It's finals week, so I've only had time to skim the lay mans article. But it seems to me that if what they're claiming is true, then this is a huge step forward for the science behind lucid dreaming.

      Some possible discussion points
      • critiques of the study, was it conducted properly, any obvious flaws/limitations
      • Does the lay man article accurately describe the results of the study, or are they sensationalizing it?
      • beyond understanding lucid dreaming, how useful might this method be for studying consciousness?
      • Implications for lucid dreaming in general, is it a good thing if we develop an easy route to lucidity, or will something be lost if people no longer have to undergo extensive training?

      Im going to hook up a 9 volt battery to my head tonight. Wish me luck.

      Its interesting about the 40Hz signal. Researchers at Transparent Corporation have found that their cd with a 40 Hz isochronic tone has induced spontaneous OBE's for some people.

      Thread needs moving to proper location too.

      It's really interesting, but obviously a bit pop sciency. Maybe in a few years, we'll have lucid dreaming helmets. Maybe nothing will come of it. I remain cautiously optimistic.

      I see it as a very plausible device. A rem detector hooked up to a device playing a 40Hz isochronic tone would generate far better results than flashing red LED's in one's eyes with recent scientific findings. Perhaps the nova dreamer and other such devices will enter a new era soon.

      I think this thread should be in Dream Research and not Science & Mathematics.

      A thread on the same topic already exists in the research sub-forum, I hadn't noticed that when I made this thread. A mod should feel free to delete this thread
