I put people who claim to have had a UFO encounter to the test, and these are the symptoms they show.
A PROFESSOR has been examining the brains of people who claim to have had a UFO encounter, and the following are the symptoms they exhibit.
Dr. Garry Nolan, a Stanford University professor of pathology who has published over 300 research articles and holds 40 US patents, has spent the last decade analyzing materials from alleged Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) cases.
Nolan opened up about his work and what drew him to UAP in an interview with Vice's Motherboard.
Nolan, who described himself as an "avid reader of science fiction," said his interest piqued when he contacted a man named Steven Greer, who claimed a small skeleton could be an alien.
The skeleton was eventually identified as human because it had "a number of mutations in skeletal genes that could potentially explain the biology," according to Nolan.
After publishing a paper titled "Whole-genome sequencing of the Atacama skeleton reveals novel mutations linked to dysplasia," Nolan was contacted by people connected to the CIA and various aerospace companies.
He became involved with UAP after being asked to use his "blood analysis instrumentation" to assist with cases of pilots who had been exposed to alleged UAPs and suffered "horrible" brain damage.
"If you've ever looked at an MRI of someone with multiple sclerosis, there's something called white matter disease. It's scarring," Nolan said when asked to describe the more abnormal effects on the brains observed with the MRIs.
"It's a big white blob, or multiple white blobs, scattered throughout the MRI," he continued, "basically dead tissue where the immune system has attacked the brain."
"That's probably the closest thing you could get if you wanted to look at a photo of one of these people; you can tell there's something wrong pretty quickly."
According to Nolan, about 100 patients were analyzed, the majority of whom were "defense or governmental personnel or people working in the aerospace industry."
Dr. Kit Green looked into some of the people from a "smorgasbord of patients," as Nolan put it.
"You have a smorgasbord of patients," Nolan explained, "some of whom had heard strange noises buzzing in their heads, gotten sick, and so on."
"A significant number of them claimed to have seen UAPs, and some claimed to have been in close proximity to things that made them sick."
His team eventually discovered that the people they thought were damaged actually had an "over-connection of neurons between the head of the caudate and the putamen."
Because of the large number of people who had this "over-connection," the question arose: "Did coming into contact with whatever it was cause it or not?"
According to Nolan, about a quarter of the MRI patients who claimed to have had an encounter died as a result of their injuries.
And the vast majority of them had Havana syndrome-like symptoms.
â However, some people who had seen UAPs didn't have Havana syndrome, but rather a variety of symptoms.
Meanwhile, a startling new Nasa report claims that the agency is "not closed" to the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
While the report stated that "no credible evidence" had been found, it did reveal that Nasa's science missions were "working together with the goal of finding unmistakable signs of life beyond Earth."
The news comes as the US Congress passes a landmark defense bill that establishes a new UFO office to investigate strange encounters with the enigmatic craft.
The new X-Files-style unit will conduct on-the-ground investigations into UFOs, investigate any "threat" the craft poses, and supervise any attempts to "capture" them.
After spotting the cube on the far side of the lunar surface, China's space agency discovered a tiny hut on the Moon and dubbed it a "mysterious house."
