Scientists control mouse brain

Scientists have successfully altered the neural networks of laboratory mice using a wireless controller; allowing them to study the effects of neural stimulation without invasive procedures and without test subjects tethered by wires.

I don't know if I should be happy or cry. On one hand it could help people with neurological disorders. However after perfected could they one day implant this in a human, lets say a terrorist, have him then go back and kill his leader.

Ever get the feeling some discoveries should have never happened? Its not like everything has been put to a good use.

Thoughts?

Actually it's your brain they are controlling as evidenced by you seeing references to mice in the article. There are no such references.
