It seems that in some cases, when an individual does not respond to their first sessions,
they can increase their chances for success by changing the volume.
Interestingly, the direction depends upon their gender. For males, raising the volume seems to be effective in
some cases. For women, lowering the volume seems to be effective in some cases.
The factor seems to be about one-third. If you are using a Gauss
Meter to set the volume for the amygdaloid signal, it should peak around 10 Milligauss
(mG). For the hippocampal signal, it should be about 6.5 mG.
For males, the peak for the amygdaloid signal should be about 10 Milligauss., and the peak for the hippocampal
signal should be about 6.5 Milligauss.
The most user-friendly gaussmeters have a limitation - that they will not read above 10 mG. If you want to use
one to set a volume of 15 mG, you can use the hippocampal signal so that its peaks reach 10 mG, and then run the
You can also use the volume utility in this software to corroborate your gauss meter. Your corroboration will only
be approximate, due to the many small variations in signal strength that may arise because of your computer, or
because of how you're holding both the gaussmeter and the coil you're checking.
This page exists to give only one piece of information. That if you are a man trying
to overcome 'dud' sessions, you should raise your volume. If you are a woman trying to overcome 'dud' sessions,
you should lower your volume.
This observation may be controversial, in that it indicates inherent differences between
men and women - differences that cannot be attributed to upbringing or cultural environments.
Nevertheless, it derives from careful laboratory work, and may help you to make your sessions more effective.
The second gender-specific issue is that women have larger anterior commisures. than men do - 18% larger. The Anterior
Commisure is the structure that connects the amygdalas on each side of the brain to each other.
In one scenario, this means that women doing series of sessions with the amygdaloid
signal may be more prone to metabolic snapback than men. In another, activity in response to stimulation of the
left amygdala may induce less 'snpback'.
Women using the amygdaloid signal over only one side should be aware that their responses
may differ for that signal.
