    In what ways, if any, is it possible to purposely control neurons?

    the term dielectropharetic is alas unkown for me.
    the root of the word seems weird since;

    di = 2
    electro = electrical
    pharetic =???

    I'm purposefully controlling a whole load of mine now (and yours, i suppose, since you are reading this.) I get a feeling I'm probably missing the point of your question though.

    I mean is there any way that someone could purposely control the neuron's in a person's head? (I don't mean like, via having them think a certain way or something)
