Sir Charles Scott Sherrington is one of my science heroes, so I'm featuring him on my cogsci profile. He is often credited with coining the word "synapse."

comment Are there useful applications for three channel consumer EEG?
Traditionally, sleep stages (according to Academy of Sleep Medicine criteria) are scored based on C3/C4 and O1/O2. Information from the frontal pole would provide some insight, but, as with any consumer EEG product, you're going to get mainly the muscle activity (EMG)of the forehead anyway.

comment Does dream recall disturb the processes of memory consolidation?
Thanks, @AlexStone, I'll take a look at that. I know that there are definitely tonic vs. phasic REM (eye movements or not), and dreaming is associated with phasic.
