Can thoughts be manipulated with radio frequency?

Updated: Jan 1, 2022

The question sounds like it was taken out of a 80’s science fiction movie, however, it is instead answered within this article - which was published in 1979. The research around brain frequencies goes all the way back to the 1920’s, where they were first measured with an electroencephalogram, or EEG - by the German Hans Berger which studied EEG signals in humans. EEG can be read in four waveforms which are alpha, beta, delta, and theta. All representing different consciousness states.

What is a thought?

Before we take a closure look at the findings discussed in the article, let’s first define what a thought is. Thoughts can be defined throughout different scientific disciplines however, we will place our understanding in the definitions taken from neuroscience.

Human brains are the central organ of the human nervous system, and are made of soft tissue which includes gray and white matter, containing neurons, supportive glial cells and small blood vessels. They have a high water content - as well as nearly 60% fat. There are more than 86 billion neurons in the human brain. Neurons release chemical messengers, known as neurotransmitters, which generate electrical signals in neighboring neurons. The electrical signals propagate like a wave to thousands of neurons, which leads to thought formation.

In other words, our thoughts are complex electrical circuits.
