I remember an article in Wired magazine a few years back titled "savant for a day". It was about Allan Snyder experimenting with a technology called transcranial magnetic stimulation. Basically they put a crazy looking cap with electrodes on it on your head and stimulate parts of the brain with tiny magnetic pulses. I was wondering what other people know about it?

Here is a link to a different story about TMS and Allan Snyder from Wired:

Here is another link I found to the International Society for Transcranial Stimulation

I think a combination of TMS or a similair technology and brain imaging will lead to some amazing things some day. I think itwould be a wierd expierence toundergo TMS. I know the military/govt must be interested in the idea so they could incorporate it into helmets for super soldiers, pilots, sailors etc...

believe they felt the presence of God, or some similar mystical experience.

Im guessing a cross study between TMS and the pharmacology of '___' will yield some interesting similarities. The effects of '___' (dimethyltryptamine) on the central nervous system would be an even greater comparison.
I state this because all three directly mani[p]ulate higher and lower level brain function producing very similar effects and perceptions.
