  3. This is actually quite well studied in the mainstream, so look up "transcranial magnetic stimulation".

    I'm not quite clear on the limits of your question, but there is also the concept of lucid dreaming:

  5. So what would be the basis of Virtual reality simulation (without LCD screens etc) using these methods?

    What methods are you referring to?
     
  7. the science fictional ones where a person's consciousness is placed into another world or place. Is it even possible?

    This is not possible now, nor do we know if such a thing ever will be possible in practice or in principle.

  11. You can never be placed where you don't want to go and your limits are only what you put upon yourself.
