Skip to comments.Scientists may have found the consciousness on and off switch

The journal Epilepsy and Behavior published the findings of the accidental discovery. The evidence was found when scientists were studying an epilepsy patient. They used electrodes deep within a patient's brain to try to determine where her seizures were coming from.
... The scientists stimulated an area of the brain called the claustrum, an area of the brain that had never been stimulated. Once stimulated, the woman, who was reading, stopped responding to all visual and audible cues, as if she were a robot that had been shut down.
The team was able to recreate the scenario several times to confirm their findings. The patient had no recollection of the time that she was "off."
As one report noted however, the woman did not have an average brain because her hippocampus had been previously removed to treat her epilepsy.

Fantastic discovery! Now I have a way to turn the brains of all my co-workers to the “on” position. Phew.
Great! Once they figure out how to do it remotely (without physical contact) then we are screwed. Just turn us off if we don’t like what they’re doing to us...
So there may be a cure for democrats? ;-P
the great UNDEAD
Did they just give away the ending of the upcoming ‘Lucy’ flick ;?
So basically they turned her into an Obama drone...
How do you like this drone, crying like she is meeting Jesus himself. Absolute 100% drone controlled and programmed by the MSM...I wonder if someone has to bathe and feed her as well.
Have no fear! We’ve still got our tinfoil helmets to protect us!
Oh. I thought she was crying ‘cause he has his left arm raised and she caught a whiff.
The woman in the yellow Rosie the Riveter shirt? I have a deep yearning for the ability to climb through the picture so I could slap the crap out of her.
They should just study Hillary.
Obama has never his on.
LOL! Or he ate onions.
It looks like she is standing at attention and saying “Yes sir Obama! What ever you say Mr. Obama!” Just wait till we get closer to 2016, we’re going to see these same dingbats acting this way for Hitlery or Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren. “So what if she’s a hardcore communist, she has ovaries and she is for the children! I am so voting for her!”
Yep, they’re gibbering morons. The woman in the pic has that batcrap crazy expression I see on female drivers who have Obama bumperstickers.
Actually there have been all sorts of research into the effects that certain tones/sounds have on people (like falling over, losing control of their bowels, etc.) in the name of "crowd control".
