Scientists Remotely Hack Brain, Control Body Movements

Scientists have discovered a way of secretly hacking the brains of human beings and controlling their limbs without their permission.

A team led by physics professor Arns Pralle, PhD, of the University at Buffalo College of Arts and Sciences found a way to cause their test subjects to freeze in place and completely lose control of their bodily functions using a new technique called “magneto-thermal stimulation.”

Bgr.com reports: It’s not exactly a simple process — it requires the implantation of specially built DNA strands and nanoparticles which attach to specific neurons — but once the minimally invasive procedure is over, the brain can be remotely controlled via an alternating magnetic field.

When those magnetic inputs are applied, the particles heat up, causing the neurons to fire.

The study, which was published in the most recent edition of the journal eLife, includes experiments where were performed on mice.

Using the new technique, the researchers were able to control the movement of the animals, causing them to freeze, lock up their limbs, turn around, or even run.

Despite only being tested on mice, the research could have far-reaching implications in the realm of brain research.

The holy grail for dreamers like Elon Musk is that we’ll one day be able to tweak our brains to eliminate mood disorders and make us more perfect creatures.

This groundbreaking research could very well be an important step towards that future.

    This places Elon Musk in the same class as Jeffrey Dahmer who was working on the same thing.
