Does the Brain Need Stimulation?
Scientific Question: What happens if you remove the stimulation of the outside world? (1953)
Hypothesis: Many scientists wondered what would happen if a person were cut off from all sensory stimulation and from interactions with the world outside…
Scientists influenced by the “behaviorist” school, thought of the brain as an organ that reacts to stimuli. They predicted that if all outside stimuli were cut off, the brain would cease its activity resulting in a condition resembling coma, or dreamless sleep.
An alternate hypothesis…
was that in a state of profound isolation from stimuli and interaction with the world, the brain would continue operating and generating experiences. See the Samadhi website
