Well, not exactly mind control but scientists have taken rat training to a new level. By inserting electrodes into the brain of a rat, they’re able to effectively control a rat to move forward, left and right. They used the brain area that processes whisker info for left/right control and the pleasure center for moving forward. All sorts of interesting implications- no mention of when a human version would be available. The feat is mentioned in an IEEE’s Spectrum article.
