Popular physicist Dr. Michio Kaku has recently published a book, titled The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind (Doubleday 2014), which is pointedly outside of his standard academic purview, but which provides some interesting starting points for further reading into cognitive neuroscience.
In particular, he reviews the state of the art in brain scanning technology at the moment, providing an excellent run-down on what’s available and where it’s headed, as well as the inherent limitations.
One such technology is an exciting method known as Transcranial Electrical Stimulation, or TES. This is as it may seem, a method involving a device placed directly on the skull of patient, which then transmits weak but highly-defined electrical signals through the skull and into the brain. The effect of these signals is that the electrical energy actually turns off neurons in the targeted region, and the effect of that is widely varied, but also extremely valuable.
The ability to temporarily turn off specific regions of the brain provides unprecedented opportunities for the direct mapping of neural activity – identifying what areas of the brain are related to what cognitive functions, i.e. turn off neurons in specific areas of the prefrontal lobe, and then observe what effect that has on the patient (patients are conscious and actively participating in the procedure).
They used a variation of the TES procedure, called transcranial alternating current stimulation or tACS, to target areas of the frontal lobes, which are considered integral to the neuromechanics behind dreams. This, in and of itself, is extremely interesting, and it seems, at first glance, that it answers some long asked questions about dreams and how they work. It also seems to provide even more evidence for the deterministic view of biology, which says that all features of mind are the result of nothing more than the mechanical processes of the brain (the opposing view is dualism, which asserts that the self or the soul are separate from biology). It also raises a few questions about our current knowledge in these areas.

Exactly, there are too many unexplained phenomena that happen around Ghost activity, which has become hard evidence; either video or audio recordings. To be honest, I think most of it are demons messing about.
These magnetic pulsations, as seen in figure 7, are in the range of Pc1 which follows a day-night (diurnal) cycle.The Pc1 range is present mainly at night for GCI’s spectrometer at its Boulder Creek Calif., headquarters. Some scientific literature has reported that an increase in Pc1 frequencies can affect the human cardiovascular system because its frequencies are in a comparable range with those of the human heartbeat.
This graph is a waterfall plot showing one-hour spectrums over a five-day period. The first hour is at the bottom of the graph and additional hours are plotted as you move up the graph. The darker areas indicate increased activity in daytime hours and show that although the Schumann resonances are always present, they are stronger during daytime hours.

I think we are kept in a certain frequency range by our heart and brains which both have electromagnetic fields associated with them. Beyond that we are also in the Earths magnetic field and beyond that the Sun's. Without these fields one could go crazy I would think.
As the magnetic field of the Earth continues to weaken letting in more energy I think strange experiences will be more commonplace. I also think it's no accident that we are surrounded by electricity. Electricity running through a wire makes a magnetic field perpendicular to that wire. Every house is a little like a magnetic cage. Running water through pipes also has an electromagnetic field.

Hey guys, you don't have to convince me. LOL
Just click on my signature to read over 250 pages of paranormal experiences by myself and other members here.
Nope, I have to disagree with this study. Although the solar and lunar events can help increase one's capability to experience the paranormal, I think he has a long way to go before he realizes this phenomena is not caused by some type of outside force affecting our brains.
I just thought the study might be interesting to some here. Now, let the stone throwing begin!

I do agree that energetic fields affect our ability to see into other realms. Maybe my response didn't lean in that direction.
I only meant that certain people have the ability (by having an open third eye) to see things without having any distortion in the energy fields around them.
Here is a video where David Wilcock talks about this energy field being created, shown in movies so they can hide it in plain site of the masses. Begin at the 50:52 mark.
and if an even occurs that is traumatic enough it can become embedded in that location and repeat itself like you said, as a VHS style tape loop.
