Scientists Explain How Monkey 'Mind Control' Could Help Humans Quit Drug Addiction

The research team believes that their 'neuromodulation' technique could, after further study and development, be used to treat brain disorders and drug addiction in humans.

A group of scientists from the University of Utah and Stanford University succeeded in controlling the choice behaviours of two monkeys by targeting specific parts of their brains with ultrasound waves, according to a research paper published on Wednesday by the journal Science Advances.

The team delivered inaudible, high frequency sound waves to the brains of the two animals by means of a non-invasive instrument similar to an ultrasound wand used in medical scans.
