"Hobson and McCarley originally proposed in the 1970s that the differences in the waking-NREM-REM sleep cycle was the result of interactions between aminergic REM-off cells and cholinergic REM-on cells.[4] This was perceived as the activation-synthesis model, stating that brain activation during REM sleep results in synthesis of dream creation.[1][1] Hobson's five cardinal characteristics include: intense emotions, illogical content, apparent sensory impressions, uncritical acceptance of dream events, and difficulty in being remembered."

if anyone's interested, there is a nice writeup describing the Analog_EEG_Amp

"We tested the hypothesis that perception of an alternative image in ambiguous figures would be manifest as high-frequency (gamma) components that become synchronized over multiple scalp sites as a "cognitive binding" process occurs."

random tangents

(following previous discussion) - we might select a few to study in more depth (... or not! Plenty more to explore - suggestions (random or otherwise) are welcome.

stereoscopic perception:


some (maybe) interesting background on Information Theory (cool title...)

Claude Shannon: "Communication in the Presence of Noise"
File:Shannon noise.pdf
"We will call a system that transmits without errors at the rate C an ideal system.
 Such a system cannot be achieved with any finite encoding process
 but can be approximated as closely as desired."
