The low frequency noises from turbine blades can be picked up and can trigger a part of the brain linked to emotions

brainscans_3374097b   Living near a wind turbine could harm emotional wellbeing after scientists discovered that low frequency sounds generated by rotor blades trigger a part of the brain which senses danger.

Wind farm critics have long complained of the detrimental impact of turbines on their mental health, sleep patterns and physical wellbeing.
But now a study suggests that the brain can register low frequency sounds even below the level of normal human hearing.
Brain scans show that even infrasound as low as 8hz “ a whole octave below the traditional cut off point for human hearing “ is still being picked up by the primary auditory cortex, the part of the brain which translates sounds into meaning.

And a separate part of the brain, linked to emotions, also lit up when the seemingly ˜inaudible™ noises were played to volunteers in a lab.

This proves that humans are none other than sensitive beings that are formed by influence from the outside world. Every little helps. Even the low sounding noises of the electrical cables running above your head. Even the charger plugged next to your bed.
