USP # 6,506,148 (January 14, 2003)
Nervous System Manipulation by EM Fields from Monitors
Loos, Hendricus
Abstract --- Physiological effects have been observed in a human
subject in response to stimulation of the skin with weak
electromagnetic fields that are pulsed with certain frequencies near
1/2 Hz or 2.4 Hz, such as to excite a sensory resonance. Many computer
monitors and TV tubes, when displaying pulsed images, emit pulsed
electromagnetic fields of sufficient amplitudes to cause such excitation.
It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by
pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set. For the
latter, the image pulsing may be imbedded in the program material, or it
may be overlaid by modulating a video stream, either as an RF signal or as
a video signal. The image displayed on a computer monitor may be pulsed
effectively by a simple computer program. For certain monitors, pulsed
electromagnetic fields capable of exciting sensory resonances in nearby
subjects may be generated even as the displayed images are pulsed with
subliminal intensity.

Method and Apparatus for Analyzing Neurological Response to
Emotion-Inducing Stimuli
Patton, Richard
Abstract--- A method of determining the extent of the emotional
response of a test subject to stimului having a time-varying visual
content, for example, an advertising presentation. The test subject is
positioned to observe the presentation for a given duration, and a path of
communication is established between the subject and a brain wave
detector/analyzer. The intensity component of each of at least two
different brain wave frequencies is measured during the exposure, and each
frequency is associated with a particular emotion. While the subject views
the presentation, periodic variations in the intensity component of the
brain waves of each of the particular frequencies selected is measured.
The change rates in the intensity at regular periods during the duration
are also measured. The intensity change rates are then used to construct a
graph of plural coordinate points, and these coordinate points graphically
establish the composite emotional reaction of the subject as the
presentation continues.
USP # 6,258,022 (July 10,2001)
Behavior Modification
Rose, John
Abstract--- Behavior modification of a human subject takes place under
hypnosis, when the subject is in a relaxed state. A machine plays back a
video or audio recording, during which the subject is instructed to
activate a device to create a perceptible stimulation which is linked,
through the hypnosis, with a visualization of enhanced or improved
performance. After the hypnosis, the user can reactivate the device at
will, whenever the improved performance, such as an improved sporting
performance, is desired. This will again create the perceptible
stimulation and thus induce the required visualization.

USP # 6,167,304 (December 26, 2000)
Pulse Variability in Electric Field Manipulation of Nervous Systems
Loos, Hendricus
Abstract--- Apparatus and method for manipulating the nervous system
of a subject by applying to the skin a pulsing external electric field
which, although too weak to cause classical nerve stimulation, modulates
the normal spontaneous spiking patterns of certain kinds of afferent
nerves. For certain pulse frequencies the electric field stimulation can
excite in the nervous system resonances with observable physiological
consequences. Pulse variability is introduced for the purpose of thwarting
habituation of the nervous system to the repetitive stimulation, or to
alleviate the need for precise tuning to a resonance frequency, or to
control pathological oscillatory neural activities such as tremors or
seizures. Pulse generators with stochastic and deterministic pulse
variability are disclosed, and the output of an effective generator of the
latter type is characterized.

USP # 6,091,994 (July 18, 2000)
Pulsative Manipulation of Nervous Systems
Loos, Hendricus
Abstract--- Method and apparatus for manipulating the nervous system
by imparting subliminal pulsative cooling to the subject's skin at a
frequency that is suitable for the excitation of a sensory resonance. At
present, two major sensory resonances are known, with frequencies near 1/2
Hz and 2.4 Hz. The 1/2 Hz sensory resonance causes relaxation, sleepiness,
ptosis of the eyelids, a tonic smile, a "knot" in the stomach, or sexual
excitement, depending on the precise frequency used. The 2.4 Hz resonance
causes the slowing of certain cortical activities, and is characterized by
a large increase of the time needed to silently count backward from 100 to
60, with the eyes closed. The invention can be used by the general public
for inducing relaxation, sleep, or sexual excitement, and clinically for
the control and perhaps a treatment of tremors, seizures, and autonomic
system disorders such as panic attacks. Embodiments shown are a pulsed fan
to impart subliminal cooling pulses to the subject's skin, and a silent
device which induces periodically varying flow past the subject's skin,
the flow being induced by pulsative rising warm air plumes that are caused
by a thin resistive wire which is periodically heated by electric current
pulses.
USP # 6,081,744 (June 27, 2000)
Electric Fringe Field Generator for Manipulating Nervous Systems
Loos, Hendricus
Abstract--- Apparatus and method for manipulating the nervous system
of a subject through afferent nerves, modulated by externally applied weak
fluctuating electric fields, tuned to certain frequencies such as to
excite a resonance in neural circuits. Depending on the frequency chosen,
excitation of such resonances causes in a human subject relaxation,
sleepiness, sexual excitement, or the slowing of certain cortical
processes. The electric field used for stimulation of the subject is
induced by a pair of field electrodes charged to opposite polarity and
placed such that the subject is entirely outside the space between the
field electrodes. Such configuration allows for very compact devices where
the field electrodes and a battery-powered voltage generator are contained
in a small casing, such as a powder box. The stimulation by the weak
external electric field relies on frequency modulation of spontaneous
spiking patterns of afferent nerves. The method and apparatus can be used
by the general public as an aid to relaxation, sleep, or arousal, and
clinically for the control and perhaps the treatment of tremors and
seizures, and disorders of the autonomic nervous system, such as panic
attacks.
USP # 6,052,336 (April 18, 2000)
Apparatus and Method of Broadcasting Audible Sound Using Ultrasonic
Sound as a Carrier
Lowrey, Austin, III
Abstract--- An ultrasonic sound source broadcasts an ultrasonic signal
which is amplitude and/or frequency modulated with an information input
signal originating from an information input source. If the signals are
amplitude modulated, a square root function of the information input
signal is produced prior to modulation. The modulated signal, which may be
amplified, is then broadcast via a projector unit, whereupon an individual
or group of individuals located in the broadcast region detect the audible
sound.
USP # 6,039,688 (March 21, 2000)
Therapeutic Behavior Modification Program, Compliance Monitoring and
Feedback System
Douglas, Peter, et al.
Abstract--- A therapeutic behavior modification program, compliance
monitoring and feedback system includes a server-based relational
database and one or more microprocessors electronically coupled to the
server. The system enables development of a therapeutic behavior
modification program having a series of milestones for an individual to
achieve lifestyle changes necessary to maintain his or her health or
recover from ailments or medical procedures. The program may be modified
by a physician or trained case advisor prior to implementation. The system
monitors the individual's compliance with the program by prompting the
individual to enter health-related data, correlating the individual's
entered data with the milestones in the behavior modification program and
generating compliance data indicative of the individual's progress toward
achievement of the program milestones. The system also includes an
integrated system of graphical system interfaces for motivating the
individual to comply with the program. Through the interfaces, the
individual can access the database to review the compliance data and
obtain health information from a remote source such as selected sites on
the Internet. The system also provides an electronic calendar integrated
with the behavior modification program for signaling the individual to
take action pursuant to the behavior modification program in which the
calendar accesses the relational database and integrates requirements of
the program with the individual's daily schedule, and an electronic
journal for enabling the individual to enter personal health-related
information into the system on a regular basis. In addition, the system
includes an electronic meeting room for linking the individual to a
plurality of other individuals having related behavior modification
programs for facilitating group peer support sessions for compliance with
the program. The system enables motivational media presentations to be
made to the individuals in the electronic meeting room as part of the
group support session to facilitate interactive group discussion about the
presentations. The entire system is designed around a community of support
motif including a graphical electronic navigator operable by the
individual to control the microprocessor for accessing different parts of
the system.
USP # 6,017,302 (January 25, 2000)
Subliminal Acoustic Manipulation of Nervous Systems
Loos, Hendricus
Abstract--- In human subjects, sensory resonances can be excited by
subliminal atmospheric acoustic pulses that are tuned to the resonance
frequency. The 1/2 Hz sensory resonance affects the autonomic nervous
system and may cause relaxation, drowsiness, or sexual excitement,
depending on the precise acoustic frequency near 1/2 Hz used. The effects
of the 2.5 Hz resonance include slowing of certain cortical processes,
sleepiness, and disorientation. For these effects to occur, the acoustic
intensity must lie in a certain deeply subliminal range. Suitable
apparatus consists of a portable battery-powered source of weak subaudio
acoustic radiation. The method and apparatus can be used by the general
public as an aid to relaxation, sleep, or sexual arousal, and clinically
for the control and perhaps treatment of insomnia, tremors, epileptic
seizures, and anxiety disorders. There is further application as a
nonlethal weapon that can be used in law enforcement standoff situations,
for causing drowsiness and disorientation in targeted subjects. It is then
preferable to use venting acoustic monopoles in the form of a device that
inhales and exhales air with subaudio frequency.

Communication System & Method Including Brain Wave Analysis...
Mardirossian, Aris
Abstract--- A system and method for enabling human beings to
communicate by way of their monitored brain activity. The brain
activity of an individual is monitored and transmitted to a remote
location (e.g. by satellite). At the remote location, the monitored
brain activity is compared with pre-recorded normalized brain activity
curves, waveforms, or patterns to determine if a match or substantial
match is found. If such a match is found, then the computer at the remote
location determines that the individual was attempting to communicate the
word, phrase, or thought corresponding to the matched stored normalized
signal.
USP # 6,006,188 (December 21, 1999)
Speech Signal Processing for Determining Psychological or
Physiological Characteristics. ..
Bogdashevsky, Rostislav, et al.
Abstract--- A speech-based system for assessing the psychological,
physiological, or other characteristics of a test subject is
described. The system includes a knowledge base that stores one or
more speech models, where each speech model corresponds to a
characteristic of a group of reference subjects. Signal processing
circuitry, which may be implemented in hardware, software and/or
firmware, compares the test speech parameters of a test subject with
the speech models. In one embodiment, each speech model is represented by
a statistical time-ordered series of frequency representations of the
speech of the reference subjects. The speech model is independent of a
priori knowledge of style parameters associated with the voice or speech.
The system includes speech parameterization circuitry for generating the
test parameters in response to the test subject's speech. This circuitry
includes speech acquisition circuitry, which may be located remotely from
the knowledge base. The system further includes output circuitry for
outputting at least one indicator of a characteristic in response to the
comparison performed by the signal processing circuitry. The
characteristic may be time-varying, in which case the output circuitry
outputs the characteristic in a time-varying manner. The output circuitry
also may output a ranking of each output characteristic. In one
embodiment, one or more characteristics may indicate the degree of
sincerity of the test subject, where the degree of sincerity may vary with
time. The system may also be employed to determine the effectiveness of
treatment for a psychological or physiological disorder by comparing
psychological or physiological characteristics, respectively, before and
after treatment.

Method and Apparatus for Controlling an Animal
Boyd, Randal
Abstract--- An apparatus for controlling an animal wherein the animal
receives a control stimulus of the release of a substance having an
adverse effect upon the animal as a corrective measure. The apparatus
includes a transmitter for producing a transmitted field, and a releasable
collar for attaching to the neck of the animal. The collar includes a
receiver for receiving the transmitted field and for producing a received
signal, a control circuit for determining when the received signal
indicates that the animal requires a corrective measure and for producing
a control signal, a container for containing the substance having an
adverse effect upon the animal, and a mechanism for releasing the
substance from the container into the presence of the animal upon the
production of the control signal by the control circuit. In use, the
transmitter is set to produce the transmitted field and the collar is
attached to the neck of the animal. As the animal moves about, the
receiver in the collar receives the transmitted field and produces a
received signal. The control circuit determines when the received signal
indicates that the animal requires a corrective measure. A control signal
is produced by the control circuit when the determination is made that the
animal requires a corrective measure. Upon the production of the control
signal, the substance having an adverse effect upon the animal is released
from the container and into the presence of the animal.
USP # 5,784,124 (July 21, 1998)
Supraliminal Method of Education...
D'Alitalia, Joseph A., et al.
Abstract--- A method of behavior modification involves having a
patient view supraliminal video messages superimposed upon an
underlying video presentation. The video messages incorporate messages
wherein at least some of the messages link a desired modified behavior to
positive feelings of the patient. A supraliminal message generator and
superimposer iteratively selects individual messages for display from the
sequence of messages, decompressing the messages as required, and places
the selected messages in a buffer memory of a video generation device. A
processor of the supraliminal message generator and superimposer then
fades the selected message from an invisible level to a visible level on
the video display, and then fades the selected message from the visible
level back to the invisible level.
USP # 5,649,061 (July 15, 1997)
Device and Method for Estimating a Mental Decision
Smyth, Christopher
Abstract--- A device and method for estimating a mental decision to
select a visual cue from the viewer's eye fixation and corresponding
single event evoked cerebral potential. The device comprises an
eyetracker, an electronic biosignal processor and a digital computer. The
eyetracker determines the instantaneous viewing direction from oculometric
measurements and a head position and orientation sensor. The electronic
processor continually estimates the cerebral electroencephalogra mic
potential from scalp surface measurements following corrections for
electrooculogramic, electromyogramic and electrocardiogramic artifacts.
The digital computer analyzes the viewing direction data for a fixation
and then extracts the corresponding single event evoked cerebral
potential. The fixation properties, such as duration, start and end pupil
sizes, end state (saccade or blink) and gaze fixation count, and the
parametric representation of the evoked potential are all inputs to an
artificial neural network for outputting an estimate of the selection
interest in the gaze point of regard. The artificial neural network is
trained off-line prior to application to represent the mental decisions of
the viewer. The device can be used to control computerized machinery from
a video display by ocular gaze point of regard alone, by determining which
visual cue the viewer is looking at and then using the estimation of the
task-related selection as a selector switch.

Method and Apparatus for Introducing Subliminal Changes to Audio Stimuli
Lauffer, Martha A., et al. Abstract--- A method and apparatus for
introducing gradual changes to an audio signal so that the changes are
subliminal. The changes can involve tempo and volume, for example, and can
take the form of a gentle gradient having ever increasing/decreasi ng
ramp-like changes over a sufficient duration, or a more complex program
involving several gentle gradients. In the preferred embodiment, an
enhanced audio play-back device such as a portable audio cassette recorder
can be programmed to subliminally alter the characteristics of a standard
pre-recorded tape containing music, for example. As a motivational tool
during walking, jogging or other repetitive exercise, the tempo is
gradually increased over a period of time to encourage a corresponding
gradual (and subliminal) increase in physical exertion by a user whose
rate of movement is proportional to the tempo of the music. The tempo can
be either manually changed in conjunction with a subliminal program, or by
itself in an override mode, or by itself in a version of the
present-inventive audio play-back device which allows only manual tempo
alternation. In an alternate embodiment, a special pre-recorded tape
contains subliminal changes in tempo, for example, for play-back on a
standard audio cassette recorder (which operates at one speed, only) to
cause the same effect as the preferred embodiment.

Method for Mixing Audio Subliminal Recordings
Taylor, Eldon, et al.
Abstract--- Audio subliminal recordings are made in which in addition to
using a primary carrier, such as music, two audio channels are used to
deliver subliminal messages to the brain. On one channel, accessing the
left brain hemisphere, the message delivered is meaningfully spoken,
forward-masked, permissive affirmations delivered in a round-robin manner
by a male voice, a female voice and a child's voice. On the other channel,
accessing the right brain, directive messages, in the same voices, are
recorded in backward-masked (or meta-contrast) . The three voices are
recording in round-robin fashion with full echo reverberation. The audio
tracks are mixed using a special processor which converts sound
frequencies to electrical impulses and tracks the subliminal message to
synchronize the subliminal message in stereo with the primary carrier. The
processor maintains constant gain differential between the primary carrier
and the subliminal verbiage and, with the subliminal verbiage being
recorded with round-robin, full echo reverberation, ensures that none of a
message is lost. The primary carrier should be continuous music without
breaks or great differences in movements.

Product Detector for a Steady Visual Evoked Potential Stimulator and
Product Detector
Abstract--- An automated visual testing system is disclosed which
presents an alternating steady state visual stimulus to a patient
through an optical system that modifies the stimulus image. As the
image changes, the patient produces evoked potentials that change. The
evoked potentials are detected by a product detector which produces the
amplitude of the evoked potentials. The product detector includes filters
which isolate the patient's evoked potentials, a modulator which detects
the response using the stimulus source frequency and a demodulator that
determines the amplitude of the response. The product detector detects the
level of the steady state evoked potential signals even in the presence of
substantial background noise and extraneous electroencephalogra hic
signals. These detectors can be used to monitor the evoked potential
produced by visual, aural or somatic steady state stimuli. The components
described above can be used to produce a system that can determine to
which of several different displays an observer is paying attention by
providing images that blink at different frequencies and product detectors
for each of the stimulus frequencies. The product detector producing the
highest output indicates the display upon which the observer is focused.

Shadow Generating Apparatus
Whitten, Glen, et al.
Abstract--- Disclosed is an apparatus for inducing various brain wave
patterns through visual stimulation. The apparatus comprises a pair of
spectacles or other viewing apparatus having a liquid crystal display
embedded in each lens. By repetitively activating and deactivating the
liquid crystals, shadows are generated which are perceived by the subject
individual wearing the viewing apparatus. Responding to the frequency of
shadow generation, the subject's brain is thereby induced to generate
sympathetic brain wave frequencies. The apparatus finds particular utility
in the generation of alpha waves. Because learning is enhanced when the
brain is in the alpha state, activities such as listening to tapes or
lectures and the like can be carried out with greater facility. Shadow
generation is accomplished through the use of a timing mechanism for each
liquid crystal display and the frequency for each is adjustable over a
wide range, permitting synchronous or asynchronous timing.

Lundy, Rene R., et al.
Abstract--- Ambient audio signals from the customer shopping area
within a store are sensed and fed to a signal processing circuit that
produces a control signal which varies with variations in the amplitude of
the sensed audio signals. A control circuit adjusts the amplitude of an
auditory subliminal anti-shoplifting message to increase with increasing
amplitudes of sensed audio signals and decrease with decreasing amplitudes
of sensed audio signals. This amplitude controlled subliminal message may
be mixed with background music and transmitted to the shopping area. To
reduce distortion of the subliminal message, its amplitude is controlled
to increase at a first rate slower than the rate of increase of the
amplitude of ambient audio signals from the area. Also, the amplitude of
the subliminal message is controlled to decrease at a second rate faster
than the first rate with decreasing ambient audio signal amplitudes to
minimize the possibility of the subliminal message becoming supraliminal
upon rapid declines in ambient audio signal amplitudes in the area. A
masking signal is provided with an amplitude which is also controlled in
response to the amplitude of sensed ambient audio signals. This masking
signal may be combined with the auditory subliminal message to provide a
composite signal fed to, and controlled by, the control circuit.

Mental Harmonization Process
Filley, Charles C.
Abstract--- A state of relaxation or mental harmonization in a subject is
created by exposing a color solely to one field of vision of a subject and
the complement of that color solely to the other field of vision of the
subject while simultaneously exposing an audible tone solely to one ear of
the subject and a harmonious tone solely to the other ear of the subject.
The color and tones employed are subjectively comfortable and compatible.
Preferably, the frequency difference between the two audible tones is
one-half the frequency of the audible tone having the lowest frequency.

Device for the Induction of Specific Brain Wave Patterns
Williamson, John
Abstract--- Brain wave patterns associated with relaxd and meditative
states in a subject are gradually induced without deleterious chemical or
neurological side effects. A white noise generator (11) has the spectral
noise density of its output signal modulated in a manner similar to the
brain wave patterns by a switching transistor within a spetrum modulator
and converted to an audio signal by acoustic transducer. Ramp generator
gradually increases the voltage received by and resultant output frequency
of voltage controlled oscillator whereby switching transistor
periodically shunts the high frequency components of the white noise
signal to ground.

Apparatus for Electrophysiologica l Stimulation
Meland, Bruce C., et al.
Abstract--- Apparatus for the electrophysiologica l stimulation of a
patient is provided for creating an analgesic condition in the patient to
induce sleep, treat psychosomatic disorders, and to aid in the induction
of electrohypnosis and altered states of consciousness. The foregoing is
achieved by repetitive stimuli in the patient for whom external
influences, namely those of sight and sound, are intentionally excluded.
The apparatus produces electrical stimulation of the patient in the form
of a modulated wave which produces impulses in the delta, theta, alpha and
beta regions of the brain's electrical activity, the electrical
stimulation being accompanied by two sources of audio stimulation, one of
which is a sinusoidal tone modulated by and synchronized with the
electrical stimulation, and the other is derived from sound recordings.

Method & Apparatus for Repetitively Producing a Noise-like Audible Signal
Nagle, William L. Abstract--- A digital pulse generator and shift register
repetitively produce bursts of digital pulses at a first adjustable
repetition frequency. The repetition frequency of the pulses in each burst
is also adjustable. A pink noise filter accentuates the lower burst
frequency components near 7 hz and substantially attenuates all frequency
components of the bursts above a first cut-off point near 10 Khz. A
tunable band pass amplifier having a center frequency adjustable over a
preselected range of frequencies optimally detectable by the average human
ear accentuates the pink noise filter output near 2.6 Khz. The tunable
amplifier drives an audible signal source with noise-like pulses of
varying amplitudes and frequency components. A low pass amplifier may be
connected to the pink noise filter to generate a train of pulses having a
repetition frequency near 7 hz which pulses a light source in synchronism
with the audible noise-like signal.

Multichannel System for & Multifactorial Method of Controlling the Nervous
System of a Living Organism Ross, Sidney A. Abstract--- A novel method for
controlling the nervous system of a living organism for therapeutic and
research purposes, among other applications, and an electronic system
utilized in, and enabling the practice of, the invented method.
Bioelectrical signals generated in specifictopological areas of the
organism's nervous system, typically areas of the brain, are processed by
the invented system so as to produce a sensory stimulus if the system
detects the presence or absence, as the case may be, of certain
characteristics in the waveform patterns of the bioelectrical signals
being monitored. The coincidence of the same or different characteristics
in two or more waveform patterns, or the non-coincidence thereof, may be
correlated with a certain desired condition of the organism's nervous
system; likewise, with respect to the coincidence or non-coincidence of
different characteristics of a single waveform pattern. In any event, the
sensory stimulus provided by the invented system, typically an audio or
visual stimulus, or combination thereof, is fed back to the organism which
associates its presence with the goal of achieving the desired condition
of its nervous system. Responding to the stimulus, the organism can be
trained to control the waveform patterns of the monitored bioelectrical
signals and thereby, control its own nervous system. The results of the
coincidence function permit results heretofore unobtainable.

Apparatus & Method for Remotely Monitoring & Altering Brain Waves
Malech, Robert G.
Abstract--- Apparatus for and method of sensing brain waves at a
position remote from a subject whereby electromagnetic signals of
different frequencies are simultaneously transmitted to the brain of
the subject in which the signals interfere with one another to yield a
waveform which is modulated by the subject's brain waves. The interference
waveform which is representative of the brain wave activity is
re-transmitted by the brain to a receiver where it is demodulated and
amplified. The demodulated waveform is then displayed for visual viewing
and routed to a computer for further processing and analysis. The
demodulated waveform also can be used to produce a compensating signal
which is transmitted back to the brain to effect a desired change in
electrical activity therein.

System & Method for Controlling the Nervous System of a Living Organism
Ross, S. Abstract--- A novel method for controlling the nervous system of
a living organism for therapeutic and research purposes, among other
applications, and an electronic system utilized in, and enabling the
practice of the invented method. Bioelectrical signals generated in
specific topological areas of the organism's nervous system, typically
areas of the brain, are processed by the invented system so as to produce
an output signal which is in some way an analog of selected
characteristics detected in the bioelectrical signal. The output of the
system, typically an audio or visual signal, is fed back to the organism
as a stimulus. Responding to the stimulus, the organism can be trained to
control the waveform pattern of the bioelectrical signal generated in its
own nervous system.

Abstract--- A method and apparatus for obtaining neurophysiological
effects on the central and/or peripheral systems of a patient.
Electrodes are suitably positioned on the body of the patient and a
composite electric signal is applied at the electrodes. The composite
signal is formed by the superpositioning of two signals: a first signal
which is a rectified high-frequency carrier modulated in amplitude to
about 100 percent by substantially square-shaped pulses whose duration,
amplitude and frequency are chosen according to the neurophysiological
effects desidered, and a second signal which has a relatively white noise
spectrum. The mean value of the first electric signal has a predetermined
sign which is opposite the sign of the mean value of the second electric
signal.

Electronic System for Stimulation of Biological Systems
Lenskes, H.
Abstract--- A receiver totally implanted within a living body is
inductively coupled by two associated receiving coils to a physically
unattached external transmitter which transmits two signals of different
frequencies to the receiver via two associated transmitting coils. One of
the signals from the transmitter provides the implanted receiver with
precise control or stimulating signals which are demodulated and processed
in a signal processor network in the receiver and then used by the body
for stimulation of a nerve, for example, while the other signal provides
the receiver with a continuous wave power signal which is rectified in the
receiver to provide a source of electrical operating power for the
receiver circuitry without need for an implanted battery.

Abstract--- The present invention relates to the stimulation of the
sensation of hearing in persons of impaired hearing abilities or in
certain cases persons totally deaf utilizing RF energy. More
particularly, the present invention relates to a method and apparatus for
imparting synchronous AF or ""acoustic" signals and so-called
"transdermal" or RF signals. Hearing and improved speech discrimination,
in accordance with one aspect of the present invention, is stimulated by
the application of an AF acoustical signal to the "ear system"
conventional biomechanism of hearing, which is delivered to the brain
through the "normal" channels of hearing and a separate transdermal RF
electrical signal which is applied to the "facial nerve system" and is
detectable as a sensation of hearing. Vastly improved and enhanced hearing
may be achieved...
