Nuerobiology Folks Alert! A really neat TED talk

This isn't necessarily my article or research topic but I came across this while doing some personal research on algae and though a few of you would really enjoy this. This is a really neat 2011 TED talk from an MIT research team. The "TL;DR" is basically that because neurons are electrical impulses, they have the potential to be controlled and can possibly be used to treat all kinds of brain disorders like epilepsy, depression, and schizophrenia!
