Ultrasound to get your mind right

Activating the FEF on the left side of the brain made the animals look to the right target more often, while activating the right-hand FEF had them look left. On average, the monkeys showed a two-to-one bias compared to default.

The team says that this experiment demonstrates that there are alternatives for treating mental and neurological disorders besides drugs or invasive surgeries. The ultrasound waves are inaudible and can’t be felt at all by the subjects.

“The paper shows that ultrasound can produce strong effects, up to the point of influencing behavior,” says Jan Kubanek, lead author of the study. “And changes in behavior is what we ultimately care about. For instance, we may be able to correct poor decision-making or at least reduce a person’s tremor in the hand.”
Making good decisions here, Boss!
