The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has kicked off a project to use neural recording and stimulation of the brain to treat a variety of mental illnesses, including post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.
Brain recordings will the help determine where to apply the stimulation, DARPA said, and the research will require implanting up to 100 battery-powered electrodes in the brain for up to two years.
This edges too far into the mad scientist realm for me to volunteer as a test subject for the project.
