The Dream Team

Recent research from D.A.R.P.A has revealed that transcranial stimulation (tACS) during sleep can help to consolidate conscious memories .

The research is related to previous DARPA work .


Cultocracy note :

Probably field tested on the ‘White Helmets’ .

Although that particular dream turned into a nightmare .


The DARPA research uses an applied alternating current to enhance synchronicity between the brainwaves of the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus .

Neurostimulation

Neurostimulation in medical or research terms usually means placing electrodes on the scalp to deliver the stimulating current . Similar transcranial stimulation methods make use of magnetic fields (TMS) or a direct electrical current (tDCS) .

A more recent method involves the use of directed ultrasound to stimulate the brain , ultrasound can penetrate deeper into the brain than TMS or tCS .

Implants

Human targets can be covertly implanted with an electrode array to enable remote neurostimulation . Directed energy in the form of electromagnetic waves or ultrasound can be delivered to the target using a wide variety of radar systems and communications systems that utilize beamforming .

In slang terms , human targets with this type of implant are said to have been ‘spiked’ .

Alternative methods utilize nano particles .

Tiny electrode arrays or coils can be implanted anyewhere in the neocortex .

Side Effects

There are several side effects of transcranial stimulation . Possible side effects include sensations such as tingling , itching , pain or burning , another side effect is hypomania .

Other side effects include the sensation of a ‘bright flash’ and retinal phospenes .

Memories

When introduced to a new experience the brain forms an initial ‘snapshot’ of the experience , this snapshot is thought to initially form and then be further processed in a section of the brain known as the hippocampus .

A section of the brain known as the prefrontal cortex is also though to play a part in memory formation and retrieval . The prefrontal cortex forms a part of the neocortex , the neocortex makes up around 76% of the human brain .

In fact the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex work together to encode memories and then retrieve them . The process is complex , there is a constant two-way flow of information between the two brain regions , a synchronised flow of information .

Dreams

Dreams are often related to events in your conscious life .

The prefrontal cortex is thought to govern the incorporation of memories within dreams .

More from Professor Mark Blagrove :

REM & NREM Dreams

During non-REM (NREM) sleep the hippocampus and the cortex are communicating and are synchronized . Memories are thought to be reinforced during NREM sleep , as waking memories are replayed . This process is thought to be controlled by the hippocampus which allows a more creative and structured approach to further memory consolidation , often recent memories are linked to past memories during NREM sleep .

During REM sleep the hippocampus and the cortex are not communicating as much and are less synchronized . Memories are thought to be reinforced during REM sleep as in NREM sleep . The difference is that REM sleep is controlled by the cortex which creates a more random approach to memory retrieval .

Cortisol

The stress hormone cortisol is believed to regulate the interaction between the hippocampus and the neocortex . Increased levels of cortisol during REM sleep is the primary factor regarding decreased communication between the hippocampus and the neocortex . An increase in cortisol is thought to shut off the hippocampus , thereby disrupting memory consolidation , in particular cortisol affects the ability of the hippocampus to ‘tag’ a particular memory with a specific time and context .


Cultocracy note :

Useful if for some reason you would like to ‘blur’ a person’s memories .


To sum up , your ‘waking life’ and your ‘dream life’ appear to be closely connected , something scientists and are already well aware of . Events and memories from your daily life are replayed during dreaming , although these can often appear as abstract constructs . If dreaming also plays a role in memory consolidation then it logically follows that your waking life will be affected by your dreams , after all we are constantly remembering events and sensations throughout the day , even if we are only daydreaming .

Of course dreams play a wide variety of roles besides sorting and storing your physical memories .

If the dream state plays a significant role in a persons waking life , we can assume that any disruption of the dream state may have a significant effect on that persons life in general . Alternatively the perceptions of a waking person could be altered by disrupting their dream state .

Dream loss has been attributed to a wide variety of health issues , in fact one researcher describes it as an ‘unrecognized public health hazard’ .

Decoding your Dreams

As stated earlier there is a correlation between conscious , ‘waking life’ events , memories and dreaming , so what if you could decode a dream ? Would this not give an insight into the inner thoughts of a person ? Maybe it could offer a glimpse into their memories ? Perhaps you could even glean information from the dream , such as what a person had for dinner the previous day ? You could also possibly gain an insight into what they intend to have for dinner the following day .

The stuff of science fiction ?

Scientists have discovered that the waking brain and the dreaming brain are very similar . That means that measurements taken from EEG scans or similar will correspond to both the dream state and the waking state .

A simple example would be if a person thought of an apple in his waking life this would produce a specific neuronal firing pattern which could be measured and categorized . If the same person thought of an apple in his dream , theoretically the brain pattern should be the same , or at least similar .

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep

So , can artificial neural networks (ANN) dream ?

Not quite .

Conclusion

cyborg-woman-hands

This whole area of research opens the door for synthetic dreams and dream manipulation , using biologically active signals transmitted to a human target or targets whilst asleep . It will enable the complete deconstruction of a targets subconscious mind  and allow the rebuilding of a new psyche , a mindset which can be carried forward into the conscious mind . I believe the term used is behavioral modification .

You can be sure that any research regarding ANN’s and dreaming is in no way whatsoever about creating intriguing and interesting images .
