    Sinus morphing technology

    Hey Garritan morphologists! I've a real bad sinus headache. Do you think you can work something out and morph this puppy out of here?

    I saw in the news a few years ago of a product that cured migrane headaches. It looked like a gun. You would place it over the spot of the headache and pull the trigger...

    Oh, before you take it the wrong way, it isn't suicide.

    The gun would release I think magnetic waves into your head. And after about 10-15 seconds, the headache would be gone.

    FDA didn't approve it though...

    No wonder the FDA did not approve it -- that's just silly.

    Waves cannot be magnetic. If they were, water would
    stick to itself, and you couldn't get it out of the glass.

    I know it was somekind of radiation...I'm just too lazy to look through my old Discover magazines to find it. Probably Microwaves or something.

    Humor?

    Who was joking?

    Now, grape jelly, that is magnetic...

    I'm still waiting for Gary to post a picture with a massively morphed nose...

    While Gary takes care of that, I'll post a real morphed nose...

    Water does stick to itself - otherwise it wouldn't be liquid.

    As for the migraine treatment, the device in question was probably applying a pulsed magnetic field. You probably know that neurons transmit electrical impulses. Every moving electrical field also generates a magnetic field. Researchers discovered that if they used equipment that was sensitive enough, they could detect the changing magnetic fields of the brain through the skull (i.e., without having to stick wires into your head). The technique is not sensitive enough to monitor individual neurons (last I heard), and can't decode thoughts (not very well, anyway), but researchers discovered that by applying a magnetic field, they could inhibit or prevent brain activity in selected regions. And without using alcohol! This process of clamping selected brain areas with a magnetic field is called transcranial magnetic stimulation ("TMS"). Apparently, some of the volunteers discovered that a few days of TMS also inhibited or reduced their migraines.

    Enjoy,
