Quantitative electroencephalography is a primary measurement by which dysfunctional conditions can be inferred and characterized within the human cerebrum. There is an implicit assumption that anomalous spatial-temporal configurations over the surface of a patient’s scalp are strongly correlated with altered cognitive behaviors or that both share a common source of variance. In this experiment a 30 year old male university student who had been diagnosed with toxic encephalopathy six years previously and who exhibited compromised concentration, focus and processing efficiency was exposed for 30 min once per week for 6 weeks to the magnetic field equivalents of another person’s normal quantitative EEG patterns that had been recorded from each of 16 sensors. The specific magnetic field equivalents from each sensor had been reapplied through each of 16 solenoids placed in the same position over the patient’s scalp. Within two sessions there was visually conspicuous normalization of the patient’s EEG, marked reduction in the d.c. transients correlated with his distraction, and increased proficiency for scholastic performance. These results strongly suggest that applying precise spatially distributed magnetic field equivalents matched for each EEG sensor through solenoids with microTesla intensities may be able to normalize aberrant electrophysiological activity and to improve cognitive deficits. The positive changes were clearly evident according to the subject’s subjective and objective performance. The calculated energy and secondary current induction from naturally patterned (EEG) magnetic fields to a global array of solenoids were within the range that might optimally resonate with intrinsic electromagnetic properties of cerebral cortical tissue and its unifying field.
