Check this out: Stanford researchers listen for silent seizures with “brain stethoscope” that turns brain waves into sound
This is an article about this pretty awesome thing neurologists at Stanford are developing that allows doctors and nurses to hear a seizure. It’s like an EEG but instead, except EEGs can’t always read every seizure because not all seizures are the same. But this device, the “brain stethoscope” , will translate the electrical activity into sounds.
With the help of Chris Chafe, who has been able to make “music out of climate change data and the carbon dioxide generated by ripening tomatoes.” they able to make music with the brain wave data.
It’s amazing and it’s supposed to be a lot easier to read than an EEG. But I still don’t think just anybody should listen to this because in the video below they show an example of the “brain stethoscope” and, at least for me, it was difficult to listen to. I didn’t like listening to a seizure, even if it wasn’t my own seizure. That’s just me but I don’t think other people, at least epilepsy patients, will like hearing that either.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
