This is CIA MK-ULTRA level stuff but hey what could go wrong with the US military’s research division DARPA controlling your emotions?
Human Testing Begins: Brain Implants To ‘Change Moods Controlled By AI’https://t.co/xzmHEUmgSs

SCIENTISTS have begun human testing on electronic brain implants designed to change peoples moods controlled by computers.
This will then change people’s moods and is believed to be able to treat mental illness and provide therapy.
Artificial intelligence in implants will detect and study the brain to know what pulses to send – described by scientists as a “window on the brain”.
DARPA has handed the cash to teams form the University of California and Massachusetts General Hospital.
Testing suggestions the mood implants can be used to treat disorders such as Parkinson’s.
Experiments have been also carried out on people with depression – but the the results are inconclusive so far.
DARPA is funding the project with the long-term goal of being able treat traumatised soldiers.
The current work – which includes human testing – was presented at the Society of Neuroscience in Washington, reports Nature.
Chang also denied the technology will be able to ready people’s minds, explaining they will simply “have access to activity that encodes their feelings”.
Dementia and Alzheimer’s are also hoped to be treated using the implants.
