Brainwaves is a briskly-told, engaging psychological thriller dealing with the sci-fi concept of transferring thought processes and memories electronically between different people.

Suzanna Love toplines as Kaylie Bedford, a young San Francisco housewife who suffers a severe brain trauma (leaving her in a coma-like trance) in an auto accident. Her husband, Julian (Keir Dullea), and mother (Vera Miles) agree to an experimental medical procedure, unaware that it has not yet been tested on humans.

Designed to transfer corrective patterns by computer from a donor brain to the victim’s damaged brain areas, process goes awry when the donor turns out to be a murdered girl (Corinne Alphen). Kaylie is physically and mentally rehabilitated, but plagued with traumatic first-person memories of the murder. Worse yet, the murderer is now after her.

Well-edited by Richard Brummer, picture zips along with admirable verisimilitude.
