Does anyone have experience with or at least some definitive information on Electronarcosis, aka “Russian Sleep?”
My understanding is that it’s a way of forcing the brain waves into patterns conducive of sleep using electrodes. Sorta an EEG in reverse, or a variation on the “flashy-light” or “binaural beat” generators, only more invasive in it’s current (ha ha) form.
This is an idea championed by one of my favorite authors, Arthur C. Clarke. While I love him for his visionary skills, like any visionary, Arthur often backs the wrong horse.
A quick web search informs me that yes, Electronarcosis does exist, but the results are not quite ready for prime time.
Does anyone have any hard information on Electronarcosis that could be explained to an interested layperson? If the concept could be adapted to a workable product, it’d be a multi-million dollar idea.
Heck, I would have paid a few dollars to miss my bedmate’s 3:00am coughing fit last night, and I’m sure she’d do at least as much to miss my nightly snoring like an ill-tuned diesel engine.
What is the story on Electronarcosis?
