… controlled by, say, a program executed remotely via a browser.  highly frequency-dependent, suggesting a resonance effect; depends on the monitor; can induce a number of different reactions, including ptosis, clenched stomach, visual field distortion, and arousal.  An excerpt from the patent [one in a string of similar patents by the same inventor]:

Certain monitors can emit electromagnetic field pulses that excite a sensory resonance in a nearby subject, through image pulses that are so weak as to be subliminal. This is unfortunate since it opens a way for mischievous application of the invention, whereby people are exposed unknowingly to manipulation of their nervous systems for someone else’s purposes. Such application would be unethical and is of course not advocated. It is mentioned here in order to alert the public to the possibility of covert abuse that may occur while being online, or while watching TV, a video, or a DVD.
