Editorial Reviews

The book focuses on the use of electronic implants to control one's thoughts and reactions. "This is a thoughtful, up to date account of remarkable experiments with electric stimulation of the brain, carried out in cats, monkeys, chimpanzees and a few human patients, as well as in that somewhat romantic experimental animal, the fighting bull." Philip Morrison, Scientific American.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Delgado should be commended for making his research public. Jose Delgado has several other books, including "emotions" and "Behavioral Neurochemistry". I found "emotions" to be excellent. If you are looking into research in the interest of microchip integration into humans and animals, psychiatry through the means of direct manipulation of the brain or, possibly, the merging of remote electrical devices into biotechnology, then meet the founding father. Delgado is brilliant. If you are interested in mind control, this is the place to begin. Surfing the internet on this subject will bring up useless, paranoid garbage and books by other authors emphasize conspiracies that draw people into paranoid delusions. This is a summary of research through direct manipulation of the brain using electrodes, remote stimulation and biomedical telemetry. I cannot emphasize the value of this book, it is a MUST HAVE!!!

Format: Paperback
Reading Dr. Jose Delgado's book is like taking a ride in the mind of a genius. This book is about his research of electronic mind control with both animal and human subjects. It is important to note that Dr. Delgado's work is not aimed at controlling the minds of others, but rather helping others to control their own minds to overcome such issues as anxiety, depression, criminal behavior, and even serious neurological problems such as epilepsy. This form of control, which can only be realized with extensive investigation of psychoneurophysiological processes can evolutionize society to a more productive society filled with people who are happy, healthy, and socially tranquil.

Dr. Delgado has been critisized for his experiments with animals, and some of the pictures in this book may be disturbing to some readers. The reader needs to keep in mind that the experiments were also done with human subjects, and these subjects reported that the procedures were safe, but also relatively painless as well. The animals were not harmed in these experiments, and Dr. Delgado's purpose was to find solutions to a wide range of disorders from neurological dysfunctions to psychological disharmony.

I highly recommend this book to anybody studying psychology, medicine, and sociology as well.

This book had great information and worth looking at. I recommend reading it as it discusses a different angle on how the brain and mind operate as different entities. Quite unique and worth looking into.
