Mind Machines

Just read this article in the New Yorker about deep brain implants of deep brain stimulation. They are being trialled for use in psychiatric conditions.

How weird to have an implant running your brain – taking over your personality. How fundamentally weird. To be a meld of man and machine?

I find the idea quite creepy. I could imagine a time when bipolar patients are corralled into having such things.

Weird.
