NOTE:

The term “Self-Experimenting Examination”, or else “Self-Examination”, applies to any kind of investigation, research and/or examination which are provided by third-party professionals and which are initiated, controlled and self-administered by the Author who is involved as a supervisor and subject to such investigation, research and/or examination. 
The audiovisual stimulation training-based program with a usage of “VerQAG” device, as a proof-of-work treatment in clinical practice, should be necessarily distinguished from and not associated with “auditory and visual stimulation (AVS) and brainwave entrainment”.
It should be highlighted  that “VerQAG” device is not to be classified as Light/Sound device or “Mind Machine” because the fundamental principles, factors and aspects of visual stimulation program with a usage of “VerQAG” device are absolutely different from AVS.



INTRODUCTION


“EL DIO” project,subject to direct-financing and crowd-funding campaigns, is designed to explore the application of “VerQAG” device in combination with the electroencephalogram (EEG) biofeedback targeting to the experimental research arranged in collaboration with extensive-experienced professionals in treating children and adults diagnosed with learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), PTSD, anxiety, depression, and a number of neurological disorders.

 “EL DIO” project is just a springboard for larger studies targeting to advancing the usage of virtual emulated reality technology with clinical applications.

"EL DIO" Project aims at organizing "Self-Experimenting Examination Program" (SEE-Program) that presupposes the enrollment of volunteers and experts in EEG-feedback-processing to take part in BCCI-experimental investigations concerning so-called “self-entertaining and self-healing therapies” such as -

(1) “SELF-HYPNOSIS MEDITATIVE SLEEP-THERAPY”,

(2) Doubled Objects Stereo Abstracted Vision Entertainment Therapy”.

SEE-Program is targeted to evidence the high-effectiveness of training-based practices with a usage of  virtually emulated reality quasi-anaglyph goggles (VerQAG device).

The official documents, issued by independent third-party experts confirming the success rate of results of SEE-Program experimental investigations are available at request mad e via e-mail.

SEE-Program investigation aims at determining of the correlation and relation for the certain  associative visual imagery stimuli causing electrical activity of the brain on a millisecond-by-millisecond basis together with measuring the magnetic fields produced by such electrical activity that will allow by analyzing the statistic data to evaluate the resulting data targeted to be publicly presented for international audience for the purposes of evidencing the results initially predicted and expected by me to be proven. 

The major goal of SEE-Program is to prove the  high efficiency of Bi-Visual Fluctuations Perception phenomena (“Anaglyph-Sync” and “Uni-Sync”), conditioned on observing  Anaglyph Binoculars Graphics with a usage of VerQAG device, to initiate the electrical activity in the brain hemispheres (specific brain associative areas) and activate producing particular-given- frequency brainwaves. 
Theoretically supposed that such brainwaves activation may trigger an occurring pleasant feelings, sensation and joyful emotions which might be recurring during the sleep (self-hypnosis meditative state immersion) while having unusual dreams called "Experiencing Live Dreaming Inside Out

SEE-program is designed to study the potentiality of visual stimuli conditioned by “Uni-Sync and Anaglyph-Sync” to serve as anti-depression and anti-addiction stimulants in the case of dysfunction in the ventral striatum.


SEE-PROGRAM consist of the following stages–

(1)         Author-branded Self-Examinaiton & Research,
(2)    Preliminary Research & Experimental Investigations,
(3)        Pro-Advisor Examination,
(4)        Pro-Alliance Investigation,
(5)   Blockchain Data-Records Networking,
(6)   DPP-Platform Online Testing and Self-Examining                                      Applications Integration.



ASMR Phenomenon 
Experimental Investigation


By drawing the attention to the lack of scientific investigation into Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response  (ASMR), SEE-PROGRAM aims to seek scientific understanding and explanation of ASMR-phenomenon and to organize experimental research with usage of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation technologies to study the brains of volunteers both who previously experienced ASMR and, in comparison, ones who do not.

SEE-PROGRAM focuses on evidencing a significant increase in activity in the regions of the brain associated with reward and emotional arousal conditioned on ASMR-triggers in comparison and association with Bi-Visual Fluctuations Perception” phenomena.




“Uni-Sync” and “Anaglyph-Sync” Phenomena

Experimental Investigation



This investigation is primary targeting to find out the correlations between the electrical respond in the certain area of the brain-hemispheres and “Uni-Sync” and “Anaglyph-Sync” phenomena-conditioned visual stimuli; as suggests that the ventral striatum provides a route for learned reinforcing and novel visual stimuli to influence behavior.

In general the investigation is focused on finding-

(1) relations of emotion-provoking associative visual imagery to “Uni-Sync” and “Anaglyph-Sync” visual stimulus that aims at influencing the activity in the ventral striatum (subcortical part of the forebrain located within the striatum) and that is associated with concrete  decision-making, risk-taking and reward-receiving action;

(2) positive correlations between the targeted frequency oscillatory activity of synchronized rhythmicity in large-scale local groups of neurons firing in certain zone(s) of cortex and predicted activation of certain neurotransmitter(s) boosting and rising of GABA concentration level correlated with specific frequency bands (pattern frequencies coherent oscillations in induced visual stimuli); 

(3) event-related correlations between the brain-influencing inhibition of levels of norepinephrine, acetylcholine and serotonin affecting the pronounced effect on amplitude and phase of targeted asymmetric alpha-activity brainwaves, including “mu”- and “beta”- rhythms;

(4) event-related correlations between “Uni-Sync” bi-visual phenomenon modulating neural synchronization and the cause of either sudden wakefulness effect during the electro-sleep-therapy session or sudden falling-asleep effect when observing specifically designed graphics using “VerQAG” device during learning and memory retrieval task performing.

Taking in consideration that (1) the binaural beats cannot be created over 25 Hz and are not really effective at driving brainwaves at all; and that (2) the usage of “isochronic” tones is considered as only supplementary audio-stimulation factor, “Bi-Visual Fluctuations Perception” phenomena, as a visual-stimulation factor exploited in “VerQAG” device, may be targeted to cause producing brainwaves higher than 25 Hz, for instance 40 Hz, a Gamma-frequency found in some research to be helpful in performing non-verbal tasks (e.g. as Mathematics).    

As a part of  “EL DIO” project, the author-initiated investigation in utilizing AVS-Ver-Prog aims at proving the efficiency of “Bi-Visual Fluctuations Perception” phenomena to be exploited in a diversity of potentially powerful applications in neuroscience, AI, mixed reality and some other specific sectors. The usage of “VerQAG” device for activating producing (or inhibiting) brainwaves of desirable patterns is just a preliminary application.

SEE-Program Preliminary Research 


SEE Program implies periodical systematic examinations of individual’s psychological states, such as basically alertness (beta activity), drowsiness (alpha activity) and electrically stimulated sleeping (delta activity), by applying cognitive psychology neuroscience methods and techniques for modulating brain activity and electromagnetic recording methods as followings:

1) EEG or electroencephalography is to measure brain activity on a millisecond-by-millisecond basis and to be used to help answering experimental questions in the case of emotions,  for example, the greater alpha suppression over the left frontal areas than over the right ones (visa versa in the case of depression);

2) ERP (event-related potentials) is targeted to measure the brain's hemispheres response to a certain visual event in order how different types of associatively correlated information are processed and what aspects of cognitive processing are to be indicated;

3)MEG (Magnetoencephalography) is to be used to examine a variety of cognitive processes, such object recognition and spatial processing among others;

4)TMS (Transcranial magnetic stimulation) is aimed to study of visual information processing, memory, attention, reaction time and even more subtle brain functions such as mood and emotion.

SEE-Program research is based on (i) employing a diversity of applicable brain activity algorithms and (ii) exploiting "Mindfulness Gaming Applications" and neurofeedback training application (BCCI-Feed App).

Experimental Investigations in 
“Self-Entertainment Therapies”

For more detailed researches and studies of “Self-Entertainment Therapies” in particular for hypertension treatment, for example, the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) might be required to find out the correlation between the areas with increased blood flow being activated by “Uni-Sync” and/or “Anaglyph-Sync” certain object visual perception stimulus
The scans must be taken when the stimulus is presented, absent or changed for another one according with the imagery stimulation sync-concept elaborated by me. The final scan statistical image rendered in 3D shows up bright in those parts of the brain which were activated by this experiment (these activated areas are then shown as colored blobs on top of the original high resolution scan). 
neuropsychological assessment of “Self-care Therapies
Together with this the applying some behavioral methods used in combination with all kinds of neuroscientific methods mentioned above might be needed in order to investigate correlating brain activities and to provide good evidence to a certain recurrent question about cognitive abilities of subjects. 
The neuropsychological assessment of “Self-Entertainment Therapies” potentiality can be achieved through the testing approach elaborated by me, which gives an overview on a person’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses by analyzing different cognitive abilities that allow discovering brain dysfunctions, arisen from neurological or psychiatric disorders . Such testing approach does not only test various mental functions, but also the overall cognitive capability of a person.

SEE-PROGRAM BUDGETING PRE-ARRANGEMENTS 
 

The approximate budget calculation of SEE Program varies depending on some factors  and needs.

The following needs will certainly increase  the project budgeting scale, namely the need of-

(a) arranging additional researches conditioned on the testing examinations revealing significant results and specific questions arising;

(b) organizing the experimental investigations with a usage of high signal-to-noise ratio, high-performance and high-accuracy acquisition and processing systems;
(c)enlisting additional professional staff and volunteers for participating in experimental examinations.

The basic level of SEE Program consist in arranging 20 electro-sleep sessions that need to be assisted with professionals in EEG-feedback and data analysis provision. As expected, the SEE Program basic-level research and experimental investigation are to be initiated and organized here in my home-town of Minsk, Republic of Belarus.

As planned, at least 5 volunteers  should be involved into the experimental research aiming at investigating and proving the potentiality of Doubled Objects Stereo Abstracted Vision Entertainment Therapy” (“DOSAVET”) visual stimulation practices to influence positively on treatment for binocular vision disorders such as double vision, lazy eye, crossed eyes, loss of stereoscopic vision (poor depth perception) or color vision. Ideally, more long-term controlled experimental investigations must be conducted to evaluate the success rates of “DOSAVET”.

The advanced level of SEE Program consists of 30 electro-sleep  sessions and 15 wakefulness sessions aiming at investigating brainwaves, heart rate, eye movement and respiration rate responses by using high-performance and high-accuracy bio-signal amplifier and processing system and EEG-TMS-feedback brain–control computer interface (BCCI).
