Genetically engineered ‘Magneto’ protein remotely controls brain and behaviour

“Badass” new method uses a magnetised protein to activate brain cells rapidly, reversibly, and non-invasivelyMo Costandi@mocost

Researchers in the United States have developed a new method for controlling the brain circuits associated with complex animal behaviours, using genetic engineering to create a magnetised protein that activates specific groups of nerve cells from a distance.

Understanding how the brain generates behaviour is one of the ultimate goals of neuroscience – and one of its most difficult questions. In recent years, researchers have developed a number of methods that enable them to remotely control specified groups of neurons and to probe the workings of neuronal circuits.The most powerful of these is a method called optogenetics, which enables researchers to switch populations of related neurons on or off on a millisecond-by-millisecond timescale with pulses of laser light. Another recently developed method, called chemogenetics, uses engineered proteins that are activated by designer drugs and can be targeted to specific cell types.

Although powerful, both of these methods have drawbacks. Optogenetics is invasive, requiring insertion of optical fibres that deliver the light pulses into the brain and, furthermore, the extent to which the light penetrates the dense brain tissue is severely limited. Chemogenetic approaches overcome both of these limitations, but typically induce biochemical reactions that take several seconds to activate nerve cells.

  1. PEOPLE WHO ARE NO LONGER HUMAN ARE NOT ONLY BIOWEAPONS, BUT ARE ACTUALLY WALKING MARKS OF THE BEAST. THE system of satan has risen, AND CAN ONLY BE CHANGED FOR AN ETERNITY, WHEN THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST. WE MUST NOW ONLY ASSOCIATE WITH HUMAN BEINGS THAT HAVE NOT, NOT TAKEN THE VACCINE. WE NOW HAVE AN ETERNAL DECISION TO MAKE AS TO WHAT SIDE OF THE FENCE WE SHALL PLACE OURSELVES.

    1. Agree SeaShell. Have just tonight spoken with a Christian woman who told me quite assertively that no the v was not the MOTB. Will be getting it herself. And all the other things these people say which never fail to astound me. I conclude it’s an IQ test of sorts. These people really believe the fake narrative.

      1. THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT PEOPLE WANT OTHERS TO JOIN THEIR GROUP IN DOING SO, AS MISERY NEEDS COMPANY, THIS TIME THE MISERY SHALL BE AN ETERNAL ONE. SHE CAN NOT CONSIDER HERSELF CHRISTIAN. RECENTLY LISTENING TO MIKE ADAMS, IN WHICH HE DOES HAVE PERCISE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AND ADVICE — I HAVE BECOME SKEPTICAL OF HIM. MY REASON FOR THIS IS HE SOMEWHAT ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO TAKE THE VACCINE, BY GIVING ADVICE ON HOW TO OVERCOME THE SIDE AFFECTS, TO ME THIS IS GIVING COMPLIANCE. IF SOMEONE OR GROUP CAN NOT COME OUT AND TAKE A PERMANENT STAND AND COMMIT THEMSELVES AND SAY ABSOLUTELY AVOID IT, THE PERSON AND/OR ORGANIZATION HAS COMPLETELY LOST MY RESPECT, EVEN THOUGH THEY MAY BE ACCURATE ON SOME FACTS. I HAVE FOUND IT IS BETTER TO LIVE WITH THE TRUTH AND PROTECT ONE’S SOUL. THERE IS NO ONE THAT IS GOING TO PROTECT YOUR SOUL, OTHER THAN JESUS CHRIST AND YOURSELF. AS JESUS CHRIST TOLD US, HE SHALL END ALL EVIL THINGS, AS FOR DELAY IN HIS COMING (WHICH SHALL NOT BE) NO FLESH SHALL BE SAVED ALIVE.
        THESE LAST DAYS THE CHURCH SHALL HAVE A FALLING AWAY, AND ONLY A FEW SHALL BE LEFT.
        MEANWHILE MORE WARS ON THE HORIZON IN THE US OF THE FORMERA:

    This makes me think about all those people being able to attach a magnet to their upper arm at a certain place.. 🤔

  3. HE MIKE ADAMS SHOULD NOT BE RECOMMENDING SUPPLEMENTS OR ANY OTHER SUBSTANCE FOR PEOPLE TAKING THE VACCINE, WHEN PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE TAKING THE VACCINE PERIOD. HE SHOULD NOT BE SUGGESTING TO PEOPLE TO TAKE THE VACCINE IF THEY ARE IN GOOD HEALTH. WHAT A FAKE HE HAS BECOME, EVERYONE AND I MEAN EVERYONE NOT ONLY SHOULD AVOID THE VACCINE, BUT SURE AS HELL SHOULD PROTEST AGAINST IT. NANOPARTICLES IN THE BRAIN AND CHANGING OF DNA SHOULD NEVER BE. MAKES YOU WONDER IF HE IS GETTING MONEY UNDER THE TABLE FROM BIG PHARMA, AND FROM US AS WELL. HE IS KEEPING A TIGHT LID ON HIMSELF, BUT NOT TO THOSE OF US LISTENING WELL. EVENTUALLY ALL SECRETS SHALL BE REVEALED INCLUDING HIS, I JUST WONDER AT WHAT PRICE HE SOLD HIMSELF TO THE BIG PHARMA. LET US KEEP UP OUR SHIELDS AND TEAR DOWN THE LAYERS OF ONION.
