Scientists have combined ultrasound, viruses and synthetic drugs to control regions of the brain.

Human brains are complicated - the most complicated thing in the known universe, many people say. So far we understand little - just that certain regions of the brain appear to be involved in certain activities and certain disorders. In extreme cases this has led to the practice of removing sections of the brain, or using electrodes or optical fibers to control activation rates. What is unique about this approach is it offers a way to turn on and off specific brain regions without invasive surgery. It has promise because it combines existing technologies: micro-bubbles, ultrasound, synthetic viruses, and synthetic drugs to achieve this goal.

If they manage to make each virus respond to a different frequency, they could inject each neuron in the brain with a different virus and they would be able turn on/off each neuron in the brain with ultrasounds. With that they could study the brain in complete detail. But, and this is a huge but, i have no idea how they can achieve that. But if its somehow possible, the team that would do that would certainly win a nobel prize and it would be the biggest invention of the 21 century.

They are lying. Ultrasounds can be used to manipulate people minds, thoughts and decisions. Voice recordings modulated in ultrasounds are very old military techniques of hypnotism and subliminal messaging on subconscious levels.

A group of neuroscientists is working with Buddhist teachers to target specific areas of the brain that are involved in generating the sense of self. Therefore, you could in theory induce states of enlightenment at will.

Wow, Brave New World Redux. Once the brain is mapped in a similar way the Genome has been mapped individual behavior can be programmed to be docile or even remorseless killers similar to the SS. You may or may not see it but this could become a Tyrants dream solution to population manipulation.

I don't know about the methods but I certainly like this man's idea of a clean environment ;) Now to help companies want to invest and found such endeavor, imagine all the brain capacities you can sell with such technologies where people would pay to have better eye sight, hearing, maybe trigger better healing factors, correct that hypothalamus gland, better math or art cognition, people will want to buy grades and upgrades ;) Sad, weird, whatever, it's not about being lazy, it's about pushing the limit to where we can't perform at the moment. They won't be better, they will be different, simply functioning at another level, still prone to mistakes, just not on the same level.

This seems incredibly important to actually try and tease apart what a particular neurotransmitter in a particular pathway influences. Modern pysch treatments are pretty scattershot. Unregulated dopamine everywhere instead of a particular pathway that needs to be effected.

Is it possible to increase the range of projection of hypersonic sound to few meters? And can the sound still have similar effects when it travels through a medium? There is a place in higashimurayama japan where illegal experimentation takes place in residential area. Dont know how they do it but this video gives key information to it. Below are playlist of other such combination. Is it possible to cancel the hypersonic sound? svfrom.info/wiki/PLHWw5Pfrx9hnT__sF7H0w6FbOXCVWKm89.html

I don't think it's a good idea at all. Bubbles are unnecessary and the breaking of the blood brain barrier as he said will be too much of a risk for a single virus to exchange into the brain. Even then, the idea seems well thought out and yet there are major flaws in it. Kind of unusual for a scientist who MRI a mouse to carry around a walkie talkie in the back.
