“It has been widely reported that prisoners confined to dark cells often see brilliant light displays, which is sometimes called the `prisoner’s cinema.’… The brain contains many (perhaps an infinite number) of feedback loops. One of these involves a pathway between a part of the frontal lobe of the brain, which extends through the cingulate gyrus, caudate nucleus and down to the thalamus. This particular pathway is associated with the neurotransmitter serotonin, which is involved in many biological processes, including those of depression and sleep”
– Salvatore Cullari

Prisoner’s Cinema, Joshua Gen Solondz, 2013
