This image, taken with a scanning electron microscope, shows a new brain electrode that tapers to a point as thick as a single carbon nanotube.

Carbon nanotube harpoon catches individual brain-cell signals

Durham, NC | Posted on June 20th, 2013
The new brain cell spear is a millimeter long, only a few nanometers wide and harnesses the superior electromechanical properties of carbon nanotubes to capture electrical signals from individual neurons.

"... carbon nanotubes to record signals from individual neurons, what we call intracellular recordings, " said Bruce Donald, a professor of computer science and biochemistry at Duke University who helped developed the probe.

Scientists want to study signals from individual neurons and their interactions with other brain cells to better understand the computational complexity of the brain.

Currently, they use two main types of electrodes, metal and glass, to record signals from brain cells. Metal electrodes record spikes and signals from individual brain cells " said Duke neurobiologist Michael Platt

Transhumanism just sounds so 'savage'
 dontcha think ...my shrink says ..we are at the small apartment he keeps from his wife

we smoke

and he has asked  me to paint little monkeys with electrodes wired to their skulls
to 'go with my story" and he thinks it'll look "neat"

(a sorta mural /sorta wallpaper thing ) in his bathroom..

in return he will write me scripts for pain medicines."and stuff"

for now the bathroom is covered with small photographs
 in small frames of Dr Delgado with all kinds of celebrities that were 'totally New Way " but don't talk about it
and that many were " under his care" shh,shhh..

he watches me stencil the mini monkeys ..
he expects me to comment on the photographs ..
so I do

"very good " he says ,reading my mind.
acting is all anyone would ever ask from a type like you..
act interested.
pretend to "care about others.." he says but let them know every now and than "that human feelings  just Ain't yer Thang..come here my little monkey he says.. and i do.."
he tells me i do care about other people just not what they think.That a 'type' like me likes to touch and be touched."
he tells me that in the old days primitive man ate all kinda magic berries and stuff
and generally were telepathizing all over the place
                  primitive man he said did not need to speak aloud
     but than, like Kings and shit came along and hid the berries..
or something like that

I tell him he is lying and he grabs my head and directs my held head .and my eyes to directly look into his.
he's much bigger than me
and stronger.
"I may be lying but I am telling the truth .always.." this eye to eye thing is something shrinks used to do when i was little bein treated for autism.
but they never got physical..
or sexual.

he lets me go and tells "my little monkey,our little monkey" to keep stenciling..;
He puts some stimulants into the stem ..and inhales..
"ya know ,I coined the term cyborg .".transhumanism"just sounded so technical so "joey mengele"
i was working with valerie prentis at the time..she worked at ABC at the time..it was before she was  head of parasol intraneural ..but it was all that was on her mind..
she wanted a term that sounded 'cute" like something one might name their puppy"
she didn't want "apping up ' another with 'devices ' to put anyone off..
.for instance he said putting a larger piece of inhaled stimulants in the pipe.
if someone asked ..
why did 'that actor ' go all beat em up" on his wife.
you don't wanna say
"oh we made introduced transhumanistic implants into his blood and he had ,"a moment'

well any way long story short.
valerie wanted a nice safe  Disney-eque  term for "apping'* someone..and what the "apped' might be called.
One isnt quite what they were after being apped are they monkey boi are they?...
my mentor pipes to me i should answer or smile .so i do
"good boy good boi " dr delgado says giving me the glass stem..

now more focused 'from the meds" i didnt have to pretend i cared about dr delgado's story but for a few moments I actually felt (thanks to your  Immersive reality enhancements ,Evan graphed ,don't give yourself that much credit---)

when dr dell first coined the word "cyborg"
EVAN graphed me a visual
of Valerie Prentis holding up a small white dog.and removing the collar around it's neck that indicated the dog's name was 'talcum"

" from now on you are called  Cyborg ," valerie( or, at least  the telepresence  over riding my visual cortex "said'AT LEAST? EVAN huffed,stating that as usual Dumbo ruins everything by THINKING about IT..it's the same thing as 'reality" even moreso..at least..huh

"snap out of of it Monkey. The dr says.You can't be doing that "trance" thing you know...it shows..
"you don't want to Squeak do you?"
"No ," i say snapping out of "it"

"so the nebulous term Cyborg soon entered the collective consciousness..you wanna know what happened to talcum though? talcum,valerie's dog
didnt respond to the new name
and ya know what had to happen cuz he didnt
Cyborg had to be put to sleep.
a shame .such a nice dog.come here monkey...let's smoke another bag.

*Dr Ewen  Cameron ,President of the American Psychiatric Association in 1952–1953  warned that people with mental illnesses could spread and transmit their diseases. He warned that government institutions should take measures against such potential liabilities. Cameron began to base some of his notions on race, as is seen in his theories regarding the German people.
In the late 1940s, Cameron presented his ideas in a lecture entitled Dangerous Men and Women. It describes various personalities that he believed were of marked danger to all members of society. The personality types are as follows:
  • A passive man who "is afraid to say what he really thinks" and "will stand anything, and stands for nothing".
  • A possessive type, filled with jealousy and demanding utmost loyalty. This personality type poses a danger to those closest to them, especially children.
  • The insecure man — "They are the driven crowds that makes the army of the authoritarian overlord; they are the stuffing of conservatism ... mediocrity is their god. They fear the stranger, they fear the new idea; they are afraid to live, and scared to die." This third type needs conformity and obeys the dictates of society, adhering to a world of strict standards of right or wrong (which are manipulated by power groups to keep the insecure controlled and dependent). Cameron theorized that this type is dangerous because of its "lust for authority".
  • The last type is the psychopath , the greatest danger in times of political and societal upheaval;
Cameron believed that a society in which psychiatry built and developed the institutions of government, schools, prisons and hospitals would be one in which science triumphed over the "sick" members of society. He demanded that political systems be watched, and that  people needed to be monitored due to their "personality type
Cameron stated, "Get it understood how dangerous these damaged, sick personalities are to ourselves - and above all, to our children, whose traits are taking form and we shall find ways to put an end to them." For Cameron, the traits were contagions and anyone affected by the societal, cultural or personality forms would themselves be infected. Cameron used his ideas to implement policies on who should govern and/or parent in society. The described types would have to be eliminated from society if there was to be peace and progress. The sick were, for Cameron, the viral infection to its stability and health. The described types were the enemies of society and life.

Best known for his other behavior modification research .  Cameron experimented with various paralytic drugs and electroconvulsive therapy at thirty to forty times the normal power.[ His mind augmenting  experiments consisted of putting a subject into a drug-induced coma for weeks at a time (up to three months in one case) while playing tape loops of noise or simple statements. Cameron's experiments were typically carried out on patients who had entered the institute for minor problems such as anxiety disorders and postpartum depression; many suffered permanent debilitation after these treatments.[17]
It was during this era that Cameron became known worldwide as the first chairman of the World Psychiatric Association as well as president of the American and Canadian psychiatric associations.
 One of Cameron's ongoing "attempts to establish lasting effects in a patient's behaviour" using a combination  of intensive repetition of prearranged verbal signals and telemetry  exposure to a range of RF and electromagnetic signals.

 Drs. Vernon Mark, Frank Ervin, and William Sweet. Mark and Ervin describe implanting brain electrodes in a large number of patients at Harvard hospitals. A patient named Jennie was 14 years old when they put electrodes in her brain. In their book Violence and the Brain photographs show 18-year old Julia smiling, angry, or pounding the wall depending on which button is being pushed on the transmitter box sending signals to her brain electrodes. The mind doctors saw their patients as biological machines, a view which made them sub-human, and therefore easier to abuse .

Dr. Robert G. Heath,  Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry and Neurology at Tulane University, placed brain electrodes in a young homosexual man and fitted him with a box. A button on the box could be used to electrically stimulate an electrode implanted in a pleasure center. During one three-hour period, the patient, referred to as B-19, stimulated himself 1,500 times. "During these sessions, B-19 stimulated himself to a point that he was experiencing an almost overwhelming euphoria and elation, and had to be disconnected, despite his vigorous protests."
"certain kinds of radio frequency energy have been found to produce concussions from a distance using mechanical blast waves propagated through the air. Such a concussion "is always followed by amnesia for the actual moment of the accident." It states: "The blast duration would be in the order of a tenth of a second. Masking of a noise of this duration should not be difficult. It would be advantageous to establish the effectiveness of both of the above methods as a tool
