Deep brain stimulation can offer relief to patients with diseases such as Parkinson’s and epilepsy, but it requires brain surgery to implant electrodes deep inside the head.
Now researchers think they’ve come up with a way to do the same thing without cutting. They have used electrodes on the heads of mice to make the animals wiggle their paws and whiskers — even under deep sedation.
“All of our knowledge about the brain says it an electrical conductor,” Boyden said.
Boyden and colleagues call the method temporal interference, and it allows them to send electrical signals deep into the brain without affecting the layers in between.
What Boyden’s team did is use the principle of interference to turn two high-frequency signals into one, targeted, low-frequency signal.
Electrical Power can be transmitted as a microwave beam. In 1964, William C Brown demonstrated a miniature helicopter flying by converting microwave power into electricity.The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) beamed 1.8 kilowatts by converting electricity to microwaves and then converting back to electricity through the air to a receiver 55 meters away in 2015. In the same year, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries demonstrated transmission of 10 kilowatts (kW) of power to a receiver 500 meters away.
Nor does it increase the possibility.
Still, it doesn't remove the possibility that someone could be abducted or kidnapped then ideas could be 'put in their head' by force, with no trace or surgical evidence.
