  • US3951134A. Apparatus and method for remotely monitoring and altering brain waves. 20 Apr. 1976, filed 5 Aug. 1974. Assigned to Dorne & Margolin Inc. "Apparatus for and method of sensing brain waves at a position remote from a subject whereby electromagnetic signals of different frequencies are simultaneously transmitted to the brain of the subject in which the signals interfere with one another to yield a waveform which is modulated by the subject's brain waves. The interference waveform which is representative of the brain wave activity is re-transmitted by the brain to a receiver where it is demodulated and amplified. The demodulated waveform is then displayed for visual viewing and routed to a computer for further processing and analysis. The demodulated waveform also can be used to produce a compensating signal which is transmitted back to the brain to effect a desired change in electrical activity therein."

  • US5450859A. Protection of living systems from adverse effects of electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields. 19 Sept. 1995, filed 6 Jul. 1993. Assigned to Catholic University of America. "The disclosed embodiments of the inventions disclosed in this application develop a 'protection' electric, magnetic or electromagnetic field or fields which are either superimposed upon an ambient field which is detrimental to the health of living systems, or is incorporated into the electrical circuit of the device which is generating the detrimental field. Either arrangement is successful in 'confusing' living cells, and thereby reducing the harmful effects of the otherwise detrimental field."
  • US5968527A. Protection of living systems from the adverse effects of stress. 19 Oct. 1999, filed 4 Dec. 1997. Assigned to Catholic University of America. "Methods and apparatus are described to inhibit the adverse health effects of ischemia, hypoxia, anoxia or other stress by the application of a time-varying field to the region of the affected organ(s) for a short period of time (of the order of 20 minutes). A 'field' means a time varying electric field, a time varying magnetic field and/or a radiating electromagnetic field. The exposure can be started up to two or more hours in advance of the ischemic event or other stress causing event. Inhibition occurs even if the field is applied after the onset of ischemic or anoxic stress."

  • US5899922A. Manipulation of nervous systems by electric fields. 4 May 1999, filed 14 Nov. 1997. "Apparatus and method for manipulating the nervous system of a subject through afferent nerves, modulated by an externally applied weak electric field. The field frequency is to be chosen such that the modulation causes excitation of a sensory resonance."
  • US6238333B1. Remote magnetic manipulation of nervous systems. 29 May 2001, filed 10 Aug. 1999. "Apparatus and method for remote manipulation of nervous systems by the magnetic dipole field of a rotating bar magnet. Reliance on modulation of spontaneous spiking patterns of sensory nerve receptors, and exploitation of a resonance mechanism of certain neural circuits, allows the use of very weak magnetic fields. This, together with the large magnetic moments that can be obtained with a permanent bar magnet, makes it possible to effectively manipulate the nervous system of a subject over a distance of several hundred meters, using a small portable battery-powered device."
  • US6506148B2. Nervous system manipulation by electromagnetic fields from monitors. 14 Jan. 2003, filed 1 June 2001. "Physiological effects have been observed in a human subject in response to stimulation of the skin with weak electromagnetic fields that are pulsed with certain frequencies near ½Hz or 2.4 Hz, such as to excite a sensory resonance. Many computer monitors and TV tubes, when displaying pulsed images, emit pulsed electromagnetic fields of sufficient amplitudes to cause such excitation. It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set."
