how to fake EEG to look like epilepsy...any drugs, food or drinks can affect?!

hey it`s my first...don`t get me wrong...i`m a Dentist from egypt and i`m having such a research on how people can fake eplipsy spikes on EEG, I know it`s not my speciallity but i do it for a research diploma requirment....

 

Some colleagues told me it can be done by wearing metallic objects......drinking excessive about of caffiene and redbull..etc.

 Any helpfull tips to make such spikes or artifacts?!

Hi ParaNormal,

Do you mean for a person to purposely induce an epileptic seizure so as to obtain an EEG reading indicating
the seizure? Or for a person to purposely do something that doesn't result in any neurological seizure, but
which results in an EEG recording the effects as being like an epileptic seizure?

The Reflex Epilepsies often provide situations where simple stimuli can purposely induce an epileptic seizure.
Many drugs can increase the likelihood of a seizure, but most all ER's first assumption with a seizure event
is the possibility of drug abuse and testing for possible drugs.

I tried to find possible triggers for my periodic clusters of seizures, but to no avail. Strong Pavlovian
conditioning came closest to inducing epileptic-like aura of intense Limbic fear sensations, but it was
still vastly different than an amygdala focused partial epileptic seizure. "Practicing" by trial-and-error
with an overly expensive EEG might work in a long-run (much like bio-feedback attempts), but learning to
induce at least partial Limbic seizure-like "events" with the "aura effects" from a "God Helmet" might work faster and
more economically, then searching for the effect that records easiest on an EEG. Or, the helmet itself would
probably record on the EEG, but the EEG operator might be sober enough to wonder about the helmet or headphones. Practicing with other phenomena might work too:

Hi ParaNormal,

Hacking a toy like MindFlex as a cheap summative EEG, with the available data banks, and/or using the Persinger method with the their software with ShaktiTechnology version of the God Helmet, and designing an oral (i.e., mount an ipod in the mouth (of the helmet) (what's "safety"?) with modified solenoids for "headphones") device to generate the imitating "rotating magnetic field" to generate magnetic fields "faking" an epileptic attack, seems feasible:

Some used MindFlex games are going for less than the S/H for them on ebay. Then, it might be possible to stumble upon a more promising "epileptic attack alarm system" for the price of S/H with a lucky hack or hunch.

Re: how to fake EEG to look like epilepsy.

I'm not sure .... But they tell you before a eeg not to smoke or use caffeine before . I'm not sure if it masks or excites some brain receptors . Just a thought . You can look in that direction .

I fail to see why anybody

I fail to see why anybody would want to Fake their test results.. Is it to make sure you get treatment? If this is the case then surely the treatment which is worked out on a FAKE EEG result is of no use?

Very odd.
