Correlation between Fluctuations in Human Ultra-weak Photon Emission and EEG Alpha Rhythm

“Ultra-weak photon emission” (UPE) recording is a technique that registers, non-invasively and on-line, reactive oxygen species (ROS) fluctuations. The objective of the present study was to perform simultaneous recordings in human subjects of UPE and EEG and to study a possible correlation between UPE and EEG fluctuations. Thirty-six EEG recordings of 1 h each were performed at P3 and P4 with simultaneous regis-tration of UPE of the right dorsum hand utilizing a newly designed tabletop photomultiplier device. Both spectral, statistical and correlation analyses were performed. The data suggest significant correlations between fluctuations in photon emission and fluctua-tions in strength of alpha wave production in the 7-13 Hz frequency band and its 1-Hz sub-bands. Correlations between UPE and the whole alpha region were clarified when correlations were addressed UPE and specific 1-Hz sub-bands. Further clarification was observed with smaller fragments of time series data which suggested that the correlations were temporary. When one data row was shifted over defined lag periods compared to the other, different data emerged. The synchronization exhibits characteristics of a weak phase and frequency coupling, indicat-ing that the systems are neither completely independent nor in a fixed mutual relationship. The synchronization also highlights that the weak coupling may involve slowly drifting and sliding phases. The data are discussed in relationship to mind – body interactions and the role of consciousness in health.
