(Newser) – You're one step closer to having your movement and sexual arousal controlled by somebody else, but the huge, obtrusive helmet you'd have to wear would probably tip you off. A scientist at MIT has developed a method for wireless mind control in mice, reports Discover. The helmet triggers specific reactions in the subject by flashing colored lights on particular areas of the brain, switching on and off aggression, sexual behavior, and directional movement.

Previous devices have used heavy wired devices that can hinder the validity of a study. The new development could open up a wide range of experiments that could offer insight into diseases like Parkinson's. The biggest obstacle is the size and weight of the equipment needed—but that shouldn't last long. "Nearly all of the underlying technologies enabling this device are being improved daily," says the developer. "By riding technology development curves, the system described here may eventually be miniaturized to a few square millimeters.”

Obama US Darpa are using wireless mind control on me now for Darpa Military research. They are microing all US citizens and worldwide Darpa though your cell phone server and computer. I don't work for Darpa. Darpa Adv. Alien Tech. microing your right eye retina forms an invisible cam and an illegal ATT cell phone connection that can view you at any angle, record, harass or wifi torture you. ATT cell wifi talk to you like a cell phone in your ear live 24 hrs. a day. Howard says Jay Leno gets 100 million a year for Obama Darpa Gov. ATT wifi tower installations, leases and retina eye micro program with Darpa help across CA. and USA - They doing this Global - Land Of The Free!
