Many people have a cat or a dog, or even a few furry pets, at home. Although their owners usually buy beds for them, often the animals do not sleep in their places, but in the bed with them. The fact that this is wrong and can be harmful to health is known to people. But what is really the problem?
Consequences in the form of dizziness
Even more than half a century ago, the German psychiatrist Hans Berger, studying the electrical activity of the human brain, revealed that its weak fluctuations occur even in a state of sleep, says Clever... In the last century, American researchers James Cohen, Gray Walter and psychologist Warren McCulloch managed not only to determine the rhythm and frequency of oscillations of electrical waves in the brain, but also to divide them into types relative to frequencies.
During deep sleep, delta waves were detected in a person, and while he just closed his eyes and fell asleep, alpha rhythms were registered in him. They differ in frequency of oscillation.
On the device-electroencephalograph alpha-rhythms look like a series of long sinusoidal oscillations, and taking into account the confirmation of American zoologists, it is known that they were found only in humans. Even in apes they do not exist.
At the very moment of the onset of sleep, according to American researchers, a kind of "scanning" takes place in parts of the human brain - and not only disturbing mental images, but also any other electrical activity. It is no coincidence that some people, falling asleep, hear a faint hum coming from electrical outlets or from microwave ovens. In fact, everyone perceives electrical vibrations at this moment.
German physician-researcher of brain phenomena Dietrich Ebert claims that people, falling asleep, "hear" the resonance of the electromagnetic frequency of the Earth. More recently, it still coincided with the alpha rhythm of the human brain. But with the beginning of the XXI century, the resonance of our planet has increased, and this is what, according to the scientist, is the reason for most of the short-term morning dizziness in almost all earthlings.
Based on these discoveries, the Swedish dog handler Anders Hallgren concluded that at the moment of radiation of alpha rhythms, a person also perceives the electrical impulses of the brain of an animal that is nearby. They definitely do not match in their frequency, and this also introduces an imbalance in the psychosomatic system of the human body, also manifesting itself as morning dizziness.
American biophysics, European and domestic scientists have found that as soon as a person leaves the phase of slow falling asleep, which is recorded in the form of alpha rhythms of the brain, he enters the stage of deep sleep. It is at this moment that the human body is completely resting, while its brain radiates delta waves.
Neuroscientists from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, USA, studying the causes of insomnia, concluded that in people suffering from this problem, the electrical activity of the brain is in the alpha rhythms all night. That is, a person lives in a state of drowsiness for several hours in a row and cannot fully relax precisely because of the lack of switching of the electrical activity of his brain.
Wondering why this is happening, scientists have paid attention to the study of American electrical engineer and biologist Vicky Warren. She believes that animals such as cats are attracted to the distortion of electromagnetic fields.
She has several options for proving her theory. That is why cats often go to sleep near the head of their owner, and sometimes completely covering a person's forehead or neck with their own body. Absorbing the electrical impulses of the host brain, the animal does not allow them to dissipate and by its own biorhythm prevents them from switching waves to another frequency.
To confirm or deny their assumptions, neuroscientists from the University of Wisconsin tested people who turned to them for help. 87% of insomniacs in men and women, aged 35 to 65, turned out to be cat owners. True, only half of them admitted that they allow their pets to sleep in their beds at night.
