The caudate nucleus is a structure that has one end connected
to the amygdala, and the other end to the globus palladius, and from there to the parietal lobes. The caudate nucleus
has been described as "the emotive-visceral integrator." In simpler language, it's the part of our brain
that integrates our bodies state of tension or relaxation with our emotional state.
The caudate nuclear signal is not well tested, but a few people have tried it, some by itself, and others in conjunction
with the amygdaloid signal. Their responses to the caudate nuclear signal were consistent with a hemispheric (Left/Right)
specialization (or lateralization). Based on these few preliminary reports, which are not enough on which to base
solid generalizations, it appears that the left caught it nucleus is more active in states of arousal, and the
right caudate nucleus is more active in states of relaxation.
Neither relaxation or arousal are pleasant or unpleasant by themselves. Arousal can include feeling jittery, angry,
sexual desire, excitement, and a range of others. Some of these are pleasant and some of these are unpleasant.
Relaxation can include feeling calm, lethargic, listless, or serene. Some of these are pleasant and some of these
It will be a matter of personal preference and personal experimentation for you to discover which side of the brain
is more pleasant using this signal. Most people have some idea whether they would like more energy or more calm.
It is not suggested for application over the frontal lobes, because of the lack of it intra-cortical from the parietal
lobes to the frontal lobes. A great deal of output from the caudate nucleus is headed towards the parietal lobes,
so application over the frontal lobes, to which it is not well connected, could produce unexpected effects .
The best areas to apply this signal will probably the parietal lobes, the temporal lobes, and although it has not
yet been tested, the somatic character of the caudate nucleus's function suggests that it may contribute to out
of body experiences when applied over the angular gyrus on the right side.
This is not a well tested signal. If you are not comfortable using signals that are not well tested, do not use
When beginning to use any signal, it's a good idea to begin with shorter sessions.
When you're planning to use a signal over only one side, it's good to try it over each side to see which side feels
best with that signal for you
