Control of Neurons (Eg dielectrophoretic)

Post by JS » Tue Oct 11, 2005 5:12 am

Is there a way to control neurons?
Like with electricity?

I went to this website about dielectrophoretic control of neurons, but the website doesn't seem to work anymore

Only experimently, and there is no way to apply a certain electrical curent and induce the man seeing a dinosaur. It is done to demonstrate the properties of conductibity and excitability of the neuron. It is done on frogs. Very immoral thing, if you're a frog
