NIH funds wireless technology to control human behavior

It sounds like something out of a bad science fiction movie. Unfortunately, the spending of federal funds on wireless technology to control the brain is all too real.

Taking advantage of public funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Defense Department, scientists have developed a remote-controlled tissue implant for the brain. The implant makes it possible for neuroscientists to use wireless technology to control behavior and motion by injecting drugs and shining lights on neurons deep inside the brain.
