if anyone's interested, there is a nice writeup describing the Analog_EEG_Amp
"Hobson and McCarley originally proposed in the 1970s that the differences in the waking-NREM-REM sleep cycle was the result of interactions between aminergic REM-off cells and cholinergic REM-on cells. This was perceived as the activation-synthesis model, stating that brain activation during REM sleep results in synthesis of dream creation. Hobson's five cardinal characteristics include: intense emotions, illogical content, apparent sensory impressions, uncritical acceptance of dream events, and difficulty in being remembered."
a few more or less random tangents (following previous discussion) - we might select a few to study in more depth (... or not! Plenty more to explore - suggestions (random or otherwise) are welcome.
some (maybe) interesting background on Information Theory (cool title...)
Claude Shannon: "Communication in the Presence of Noise" File:Shannon noise.pdf "We will call a system that transmits without errors at the rate C an ideal system. Such a system cannot be achieved with any finite encoding process but can be approximated as closely as desired."
