Recent well-documented research suggests that between 25% and 75% of human and animal subjects exhibit psychophysiological sensitivity to magnetic and electrical fields in the extreme low frequency (ELF) ranges corresponding to brainwave spectra.
Neuronal synchronization/desynchronization and brainwave entrainment can be demonstrated clinically in cats, monkeys, and human sensitives in the presence of ELF oscillations of both natural and man-made signals, including pulse-modulated radio frequency carriers.
There is additional evidence that the naturally-occurring earth-ionosphere cavity oscillations (known since 1952 as the "Schumann Resonance") can affect moods, states of consciousness, psychological stress, and health cycles of all life forms.
Prior to 1975 or 1976, the Soviets began transmitting pulsed electromagnetic signals over broad frequency ranges (from approximately 4 MHz to beyond 18 MHz) of sufficient power levels (measured at 40 megawatts peak) to disrupt lawful radio communications globally.
Fundamental frequencies of the higher harmonics as well as the pulse repetition rates (of 5 Hz to 15 Hz) of the Soviet EM transmissions fall precisely within the "window" of neuronal psychoactivity, and have been observed to alter human EEG traces.
Speculation arises as to whether this potentially devastating problem is intentional or is an unfortunate side-effect of the Soviet's highly advanced global radar holographic imaging technology and undersea magnetic communications pulses.
This personal communication is an overview of my investigation and discoveries in this area since 197O, a discussion of my instrumentation approaches, and projections for possible future research.
A bibliography of pertinent references, articles, and books in the open literature is attached.
I welcome feedback and communication from other interested researchers.
