Triggering lucidity
I became aware of the previous song stopping abruptly. Not from the song that started in the minute above. A flurry of eye movements can be seen in the middle of the snapshot with traces of another one of those 30 second waves in the first half.

According to a team of neuroscientists at UW there are:

Neurons in the mammalian brainstem that focus exclusively on new, novel sounds, helping humans ignore ongoing, predictable sounds. The neurons are located under the cortex in a part of the brain called the inferior colliculus. These neurons provide a unique model that can be used in the future to explore some of the neural mechanisms underlying memory, prediction and selective attention.

So instead of just introducing new signals to attain lucidity, it may be worth further investigation to trigger lucidity by removing persistent signals…

REM Sleep After Ninety Minutes
The first audio track played exactly 90 minutes into the session and the movements lasted for the duration of the song. I was expecting the vocals to kick and was disappointed when they didn’t. I will have to cut them in as soon as possible. The second audio track played 65 minutes after that; six blinks can be seen in the minute above before it woke me up.

2012-10-05 – Filtered Out

REM Sleep Graph
The respiratory artifact filter has been ignoring too many events that could have had potential, so I have some more tweaking to do. In the minute above there are over two dozen movements that failed to trigger the audio track.

Rapid Eye Movements
The audio track played after a series of more conventional and more rapid eye movements that I will now be focusing on with the help of the new respiratory artifact filter.

Eye Movements Dream
The audio track played after six blinks and the wave can be seen at the end again, as previously noted: 2012-06-14 – Aware-Wave.

Rapid Eye Movement Sleep
The audio tracks played three times during the night but ended the dreams each time. I woke up feeling very refreshed with the third song playing. Well over a dozen rapid eye movements can be seen in the featured minute.

2012-07-01 – Waves of Meridian

Ocean Waves Graph
I was lucky enough to record a session on a yacht! Around twelve waves can be seen in the minute above. The sensors were maxed out for the first hour while the engine was running, but the waves became clearly visible as soon as it was turned off in the second hour. I managed to catch some sleep and record a few very faint eye movements just before the battery array ran empty.

Vibrations Before a Dream
The minute before this one was full of movement. Another ten seconds of the vibrations can be seen here followed by five blinks that caused the audio track to play.

Eye Movement Wave Waking Up
The audio track played after six blinks and woke me up. A wave can be seen at the end that I have noticed a few times before when waking up and remaining perfectly still. I waited patiently for the visions to return to no avail.

2012-05-29 – Heart Off – REM On

Heartbeat REM Sleep Graph
A clear heartbeat reading was interrupted by the onset of REM sleep which in turn was interrupted by the audio track. The heartbeat can be seen in the first half of the minute above and five blinks can be seen in the second half. The audio track played in the following minute and stopped the blinking.
