Machine bought in the late 1960s to investigate electrosleep therapy; Dr. Tyndel treated several patients at the same time with the audio component set almost at full; stopped using it ca. 1973 because of changes at the Toronto General Hospital and Addiction Research Foundation; "and my personal opinion--it was a placebo."
