Professor Brian Sharpless, instructor, the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Northern Virginia, was recently quoted in the Time Magazine article, “What It’s Like to Have Exploding Head Syndrome.” The syndrome occurs as a person is falling asleep. They typically hear a loud noise, explosion of sound, then see a flash of light.
Sharpless, who has led studies on Exploding Head Syndrome (EHS), explained that as people fall asleep, their auditory and visual neurons are normally inhibited. “What we think happens during EHS is that instead of shutting down, these neurons fire all at once,” he said. “When they do, they create a perception of sound, which is why sufferers hear the loud noises."
