Found this while Browsing Reddit. Scientists from Stanford have taken the electrical signals from a brain having a siezure and converted them into sounds. It sounds like something out of a horror flick. Check it out!



cheers!

EDIT:


Stanford professors Chris Chafe and Josef Parvizi have transformed brain activity from seizure patients into music. This composition details the three main phases of a seizure. Calmness turns into chaos during the actual seizure, before trailing off into a recovery phase. The work could lead to a powerful biofeedback tool for identifying brain patterns associated with seizures.


also a youtuber commented and described what was happening in the video


"Around 0:20, the patient’s seizure starts in the right hemisphere, and the patient is talking and acting normally. Around 1:50, the left hemisphere starts seizing while the right is in a post-ictal state. The patient is mute and confused. At 2:20 both hemispheres are in the post-ictal state.Patient is looking around, still confused, trying to pick at things, and get out of bed " Got this from the page it was posted on.

That's some cool research they are doing there.
Great share!

It's creepy alright but still not the scariest. What can scarier than this?

It sounds like a Kubrick soundtrack.

I had two mini-strokes a couple of years ago, it didn't sound like that. Just dead silence. That sounds like a mic attached to my sphincter after a night of buffalo wings. LOL

It could also lead to a powerfull method of inducing a siezure, see the motauk experiments.

It does sound like a Kubrick soundtrack. Funny someone else said that to me earlier

Oh my Lord, that is truly awful. No wonder the person having such a seizure needs time to recover from this. It's as though everything inside is being electrocuted or something and taking over the circuitry of the brain. Thanks for showing this. I thinks it is a good teaching tool.

Remember people, strobe lights and strobing avatars can be a trigger for people suffering from this.

New respect for people and families dealing with this.

Im pretty sure its not what you would hear during a siezure. They took the electrical patterns of the brain during a seizure and converted them into sounds.

That was really weird. You know when you put your finger to your lips and go dee bee dee bee… thats sort of what that sounded like. And then I was also thinking that they are interpreting weak electrical signals.

What would a "seizure" from a powerful electric signal sound like?

Its kind of pseduscience, don't take this too seriously. Yes, brainwaves have an amplitude and frequency, but they have no tone, pitch, or whatever. They applied the “sounds”, to make this sound a certain way, and who knows what type of sounds they applied to it. Even on a paper polygraph you get sounds from brainwaves, and seizures, but in that instance its the clicking of the pens that supply the actual “noise”.

Well. My life is now complete. I have seen Metallica live, I have seen Motörhead, Ozzy, and a whole host of other fantastic musicians on stage, and now I finally have the answer to the most important question known to man:

What would a Jawa sound like if you put it in a top loading washing machine and switched it on?

Seriously though, who would have thought that the waves produced by a seizure would create the same affect as a theremin player with physical Tourette's ? Amazing!

Reading what that is:

The instrument's controlling section usually consists of two metal antennas which sense the relative position of the thereminist's hands and control oscillators for frequency with one hand, and amplitude (volume) with the other. The electric signals from the theremin are amplified and sent to a loudspeaker.

That's probably exactly what they did here. They ran the brainwave amplitude and frequency through it instead of using the antennas.

It does sound creepy, like something Kubrick would use

Here's my favorite creepy tune Kubrick used

Jocelyn Look - Backwards Priests
From eyes wide shut

more like david lynch..god..they are both fascinating men..there is just something about kubrick films..I can't put my finger on it..but something.......

Finally an area I have a bit of schooling in. How this was done was to record the electrical voltages from the leads on the patients head. Then that voltage aka signal's amplitude or gain was cranked up past the noise floor so we could hear it when it was passed through the lines and into the speaker. If you fed the electrical signal straight into a speaker it wouldnt be strong enough to register. I wonder what other manipulations to the signal had to be done in order to get it "hot" enough for it to be audible. Either way this is very cool.

Horrible, wasn't it. Imagine the confusion. Ugh, so much activity in the brain going haywire, wow.. and that is the thing that makes US who we are, reminds me how fragile we are.

Doesn't take much to interfere with the lump of goo in our heads, the thing that we don't even understand or know how to use, and are constantly affecting by the mere fact of living in this chemical world.

That personality that we think we are, is only as far away from disappearing forever as your fingers are away from the tip of your nose.

ohhhh good grief, I didn't even think he was serious.

Please someone tell me he wasn't serious.. lol.. you can't hear your brain.. hahah.. We don't need to tell people this, surely..

The human brain, so many extremes... wowsers!!! lmao

I think the point of it was to give the erratic nature of the brains activity while undergoing a seizure a distinct audible way to comprehend it. Not to say this is what it sounds like... Oo

I'm going mad, people aren't thinking this is what the brain "sounds" like, surely......

No different than seeing the squiggly lines on paper as the brain reacts to things, but this way we can understand the absolute erratic nature of a seizure, better. Hearing it has more impact than seeing some obscure lines on paper. Or on a screen.

I dunno, I don't think it's pseudoscience as it's not pretending to be anything other than a neat way to get an idea of what is going on in the brain, and not a new technology or technique for revealing it. But it's obvious that others need to have it explained in detail..

This proves how scary the brain is.. lol

Wow, weird...
I have grand mal epilepsy, and while it doesn't sound like this, it's a downright cacophony in my mind before it happens, and after it's all over, my brain feels like it was run through with a thresher. It literally does feel like an electric storm is building up in the middle of my head during the hours before it happens.
