Allen Pollensabout this book: University Psychology Professor Builds Stasis Chamber to Use in Researching Benefits of Extended Sleep.
Professor Harold Treadwell spends five years designing an extended sleep stasis chamber. His research seeks new treatments for illnesses not yielding to conventional methodologies. His study goes far beyond the amount of rest required for good health.
Dr. Harold Treadwell is a PHD psychologist and a professor at Philadelphia’s Jess Hawkins University (JHU). In spite of years of successful academic achievement, he has extremely low self-esteem. Memories plague him of a year’s earlier incident he cannot forget. He immerses himself in defining the complex requirements for a sleep-study research project.
Harold’s proposed research focuses on sufferers of undiagnosed and untreated mysterious pain … mental and physical difficulties that appear without warning and ruin lives. Harold spends five-years designing a sleep-stasis chamber … a necessary apparatus in the proposed study. Finally, he submits a grant application to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Its approval is in doubt until an unexpected source of support with NIH influence surfaces. NIH funds Harold’s request.
The approval elates Treadwell, but his challenges are only just beginning. He suppresses thoughts of his regrettable past. Harold moves on and assembles a research team to join him in his quest for the discoveries he perceives await them. What they find is astonishing, perilous, and with implications that extend far beyond Philadelphia, PA.
