Got a headache Dizzy? . j Maybe the reason—-a new one hown to the American Psychiatric Associatl«n today—is buzzing elec- rlelty In your brain. The buzzing is exceedingly, rapid mhes of electrical energy. JO to 40 per second. That Is half to more nan half a.? fast as the pulsations of alternating current In your louse electric lights. It occurs In both the central and forward parts of your brain. The discovery was shown In an exhibit bv the Veterans Administration Mines (HI.) Hospital and University of Illinois College of Medicine. Exhibitors were Frederick A. Gibbs. W A Stcphcnson. Pearce Bailey, H. A. Kildce, E. L. Gibbs and F 1 . M. Lorlmer. Elchty-flve per cent of persons with these fnst waves suffered from headaches. 10 per cent were restless and 55 ner cent complained of dizziness. Also 15 per cent said they had "spells of some sort," and many of them had suffered personality upsets. i These waves were discovered by tnicliv; brain pulses during drowsiness. The pulses are picked up by pasting little electrodes on the f.kin or scalp, with line wires attached to carry away the current. The drowsiness readings are part of a new way of detecting important brain waves during sleep. The report said that sleep "takes the blanket off the brain" and lets the waves out better than during wakefulness. The sleep studies showed that sometimes one side of the brain beats faster electrically than the other. This happens In hemiplegla. a common trouble among wounded OI'« in hemiplegla part of the body is paralyKd, but only on one side. This paralysis comes from the brain.
