Ten seconds of mesencephalic radio stimulation knocks out motherhood. Hugging, grooming, and nursing give way to rage and self-mutilation.... the baby is ignored.
Delgado stops a charging bull with radio controlled brain stimulation. (The transmitter is in his left hand.) Delgado reports that "after several stimulations, there is a lasting inhibition of aggresive behavior.

First came the animal studies...
We all know what happened after that.
I've always felt that people who accumulate heavy metals in their body, eventually turn into some type of antenna.
For what, I don't know.
We report here that bones from the region of the sphenoid/ethmoid sinus complex of humans are magnetic and contain deposits of ferric iron. The possible derivations and functions of these deposits are discussed.
Studies on the interaction of magnetic fields and biological organisms have centered on the influence of applied magnetic fields on the physiology and behavior of organisms, including humans, and a search for magnetic sources within the organisms themselves. Evidence continues to accumulate that a wide range of organisms, from bacteria to vertebrates, can detect and orient to ambient magnetic fields.
In many other species, such as pigeons, salmon and whales, the magnetic particles allow the organisms to navigate in Earth's magnetic field, providing an inborn sense of direction. But it is not yet clear whether humans have the same ability, Kirschvink said.
"We don't know what the magnets do or where they hide in cells," he added, but their discovery could help explain the reported link between cancer and the electromagnetic fields produced by power lines and appliances.
An unequivocal demonstration of the use of magnetic fields for orientation within an organism has been in a class of bacteria known as magnetotactic bacteria. These bacteria demonstrate a behavioural phenomenon known as magnetotaxis, in which the bacterium orients itself and migrates in the direction along the Earth's magnetic field lines. The bacteria contain magnetosomes, which are particles of magnetite or iron sulfide enclosed within the bacterial cells.
