They say that sensory deprivation does something to a man’s sensibilities in that, you lose all these senses long enough, you will start exhibiting behavior that is not like your usual, normal self. Is this true? And how does sensory deprivation actually affect your whole being?
In a controversial move, the team from Horizon delves into an experiment on sleep deprivation, enlisting six people to participate in it. They are housed in a nuclear bunker where they were supposed to stay for at least 48 hours, with no other contact from any human being.
The bunkers were dark, sound-proofed and cold and three of the participants were also given googles, as well as foam cuffs, with their ears drowning down to the sound of white noise.
These were experiments used to be carried out in the 50’s and the 60’s with psychologist Donald Hebb. But these experiments were also considered cruel by many in the science and political fields, thus, they were discontinued.
After more than four decades, Prof Ian Robbin from the St. George’s Hospital Trauma Psychology department in the UK, does the same in order to see the kinds of alteration the brains go through when deprived of its senses.
So, what does this experiment entail and resulted to? Watch the documentary to learn more.
