Here’s a rather morbid but fascinating insight into how our mind works. Stanford neurologist Josef Parvizi has attempted the unusual feat by converting brain seizure signals into music.
With Chris Chafe, the duo recorded the brain signals of a resting patient until it happened:
“Around 0:20, the patient’s seizure starts in the right hemisphere, and the patient is talking and acting normally. Around 1:50, the left hemisphere starts seizing while the right is in a post-ictal state. The patient is mute and confused. At 2:20 both hemispheres are in the post-ictal state.”
Well, the result is quite unnerving to say the least but another step forward in closing the gap between hard science and music. Here’s the video and you’ve been warned: This isn’t for faint-hearted!
