Mouse Mind Control Could Open Door To Future Treatment
Scientists have figured out a way to alter mouse genes with our brains, and it could open the door to controlling other things with our minds.By Sebastian Martinez | November 12, 2014
Scientists have found a way to indirectly control a mouse using their minds, but it's for science! And it's not as creepy as it sounds.
First off, they weren't making the mouse perform tasks or actions by thinking it or anything like that — instead what they did was have test subjects activate an implant in the mouse to release certain proteins. (Video via eHow)
The amount of proteins the implant released depended on the brain signals of the test subjects through the use of an EEG sensor, which measures brainwaves. Researchers used Bluetooth technology to transmit the data from the EEG sensor to the implant in the mouse. (Video via Engadget)
