Non-lethal weapons acting via external manipulation of the Central Nervous
System
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The study of non-lethal weapons,acting directly via external manipulation of
the C.N.S,could lead to new means of blocking aggressive behaviours without
leading to death,such as with conventional weapons.

4 types of non-lethal weapons could be achieved in a not so distant future:

1. A weapon inducing akinesia,such as seen,for example,in severe parkinsonism

2. A weapon inducing catatonia,like in schizophrenic catatonia

3.A weapon inducing loss of muscular tone by acting on those nervous
structures involved in the blockade of motor efferents during dreaming

4.A weapon inducing onirism in the form of externally manipulated
hallucinations

These weapons do not require any extraordinary technology to achieve. It
"only" requires the formation of a multidisciplinary group composed of
neuroscientists and physicists specialised in micro-waves and
electromagnetism.
