Method of Producing Locally Occurring Infrasound
Patent Number: 3612211
Issue Date: October 12, 1971
Patent holder: Clark, III; William T. (New Orleans, LA)
http://tinyurl.com/q6kcs
The object of this invention is to provide a method and apparatus for producing infrasound
utilizing two highly directional acoustical wave sources propagating intersecting beams of sound
waves at a frequency which may be in the audible range or above, and which waves in and of
themselves, because of their frequencies which are higher than infrasound, do not have the same
physiological or neurophysiological effects on a subject in their individual paths but which, in
their areas of intersection, combine or beat against one another to produce resultant waves in the
infrasonic range. A further object is to provide a system for producing infrasound, but utilizing
extremely small sources for the infrasound energy, as compared with previously available
sources.

Issue date: Apr 20, 1976
Inventors:
Malech; Robert G. (Plainview, NY)
Assignee:
Dorne & Margolin Inc. (Bohemia, NY)
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.

Method and Apparatus for Brain Waveform Examination
Patent Number: 3893450

Issue date: Jul 1975
Inventor: John P. Ertl, 15 Linden Ter, Ottawa, Canada
A method and apparatus for examining the brain waveform of a subject, for example in a type of
electro-encephalography (EEG), by providing a stimuli, such as a light, and determining a
characteristic of a mathematically determinable point in the brain waveforms of the subject. A
number of brain waveforms are obtained after successive stimuli and where the mathematically
determinable point is the zero crossing point, the time intervals to the second and third falling
zero crossings in the brain waveform are considered to provide average values which are
identified as the "A, score" and the "B score" respectively and are utilized to indicate the
condition of the subject. A closed loop feedback path may be used for stimulation of the subject.

Subliminal Acoustic Manipulation of Nervous Systems
Patent Number: 6017302
Date Issued: January 25, 2000
Inventors: Loos; Hendricus G. (Laguna Beach, CA)
http://tinyurl.com/otbfn
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.

Method and Device for Implementing The Radio Frequency Hearing Effect
Patent Number: 6470214
Filing Date: December 13, 1996
Issue Date: October 22, 2002
Inventor:
O'Loughlin, et al.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
This invention relates to the modulating of signals on carriers, which are transmitted and the
signals intelligibly recovered, and more particularly, to the modulation of speech on a carrier and
the intelligible recover of the speech by means ofthe Radio Frequency Hearing Effect.
The Radio Frequency ("RF") Hearing Effect was first noticed during World War II as a
subjective "click" produced by a pulsed radar signal when the transmitted power is above a
"threshold" level. Below the threshold level, the click cannot beheard.
The discovery of the Radio Frequency Hearing Effect suggested that a pulsed RF carrier could
be encoded with an amplitude modulated ("AM") envelope. In one approach to pulsed carrier
modulation, it was assumed that the "click" of the pulsedcarrier was similar to a data sample and
could be used to synthesize both simple and complex tones such as speech. Although pulsed
carrier modulation can induce a subjective sensation for simple tones, it severely distorts the
complex waveforms ofspeech, as has been confirmed experimentally.
The presence of this kind of distortion has prevented the click process for the encoding of
intelligible speech. An example is provided by AM sampled data modulation.
Upon demodulation the perceived speech signal has some of the envelope characteristics of an
audio signal. Consequently a message can be recognized as speech when a listener is preadvised
that speech has been sent. However, if the listener doesnot know the content of the message, the
audio signal is unintelligible.
The attempt to use the click process to encode speech has been based on the assumption that if
simple tones can be encoded, speech can be encoded as well, but this is not so.
A simple tone can contain several distortions and still be perceived as a tone whereas the same
degree of distortion applied to speech renders it unintelligible.

Method and Apparatus for Locating and Tracking Persons
Patent Number: 7102508 B2
Issue Date: September 5, 2006
Inventor: Peter Seth Edelstein, Menlo Park, CA and Benjamin Theodore Nordell II, San Mateo,
CA
n
The method and apparatus for locating and tracking a person is through an “implantable
device,” i.e., microchip.
n
The microchip can be used to locate missing or abducted persons, “runaways (missing

person classifications used by the U. S. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention), .
. . incarcerated individuals, military personnel,” etc.
n
The microchip is composed of “biocompatible” materials and can be implanted in “any
limb, the torso, including back and perineum (the small triangular area of one’s body that
includes the anus and the vulva or the base of the penis), the neck, and the head.” Interestingly,
the microchip can also be implanted in any “naturally occurring orifice,” such as the anus, the
urethra, and the uterus. [The ear and nose were not mentioned but they are also “naturally
occurring orifices.”]
n
Each microchip “has either an internal or external power source.” Those power sources can
be “a rechargeable battery, an inductive charging system for charging the battery [by remote], a
mechanical or heat sensitive voltage generator,“ etc. Each microchip also has an “individual
identifier (similar to that of cellular telephones . . . .),” with each microchip HAVING AN
INDIVIDUAL TELEPHONE NUMBER.
n
The microchip lies passive, or dormant, in the body until it receives an action signal, such as
a telephone call, by the “system provider,” in other words, the controller of the device. The chip
can also remain continually active.
