NY Times: researches can now control appetite via fiber optics

Sorry for those mice, but the fiber optic control thing is incredible. It seems takes form SciFi movies. Scientist have determined what area of the mice’s brain controls appetite and they can start it or block using a switch.

These experiments allow researchers know more about what makes us eat that much and how we could control other processes that have been going out of control. Tampering directly with the brain in this manner is uncharted territory and can lead to unforseen consequences, however we need to take this step too if we want to learn more about humans and animals.
