Reprogramming Brains

It seems like the intent of this research is to figure out how to reprogram people’s brains:

Ants may have a hive mind, but their individual brains can be completely reprogrammed, according to a new study.

Scientists in the US have discovered they were able to change the behaviour of carpenter ants by tweaking the activity of their genes.

As the same mechanisms are highly conserved, the findings hint at the possibility of behavioural reprogramming of other animals, even humans.
