Development of a reliable lucid dream induction technique

Thank you William, we actually do not need all the elctrodes for the polysomnography, just a few if we follow the guidelines of the AASM (for EEG it was just F4, C4, and O2). Considering lucid dreaming, lucid dream induction techniques and stimulation, also hypnagogic/hypnopompic states and RISP phenomena that could be used for LD induction, too, we do not know how many electrodes we need. We have some data from our previous prototype but I think we will simply have to try out different numbers of electrodes until we find out what is sufficient for a suitable neurofeedback lucid dream induction setup.

Hey William, you are totally right! The electrodes printed from this design serve just as a prototype for a) testing the approach of Krachunov and Casson and b) the installation of the cyton+daisy board and the additional stimulation hardware, something like a "bulky playground". The final design is not ready yet, but now we can split up the design/programming work much easier. Peter

Hey Ron! Great to hear that you are interested in our project. This depends on the problems we will have to solve when we will build the setup. In which topic exactly do you have experiences with openBCI? We would love to to work together with interested people! :)

Jerry, I can totally understand your frustration on doctors or psychiatrists, but they are doing their work based on current knowledge. At this moment, very little is known about lucid dreaming, sleep paralysis and similar phenomena as a side effect of different medical conditions. In 2014, Brian Sharpless has published a book on it: Sleep Paralysis: Historical, Psychological, and Medical Perspectives. That is in my eyes the only comprehensive and up to date literature. I hope that future work on these phenomena will help to gain insight into the clinical context or even be useful as a therapeutic tool. Some of these phenomena sound similar to reports from patients reporting near death experiences. Lucid dreaming can result of many different neurophysiological patterns and it could be very revealing to look for the primary reason for these relationships.

Hey Jerry! Thank you for sharing your experiences. This sounds very interesting, although I cannot reenact the after effects of constant lucid dreaming. To how many people, who were in coma before, have you talked about the relationship of coma and lucid dreaming? I would love to read more about your experiences and also about the results of your sleep study. If you do not want to share it in public, you can write me at peter@openlucidity.com
