From Sky News:
Scientists have found a way to turn on deep sleep at will using a machine that magnetically stimulates the brain…
“Creating slow waves on demand could some day lead to treatments for insomnia,” said study leader Prof Giulio Tononi, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Man, after the night I just had this is the very best news I could have stumbled on. I doubt the technology is all that usable yet, but I’ll be watching for further developments.
“Theoretically, it could also lead to a magnetically stimulated `power nap’ which might confer the benefit of eight hours’ sleep in just a few hours.”
Now that would be sweet. I really hope we see consumer-level applications of this in the not too distant future because it’s not fair that there can be people like this.
What would I do with all that extra time in the day? Probably daydream. How about you?
