The GRID Lab is interested in using electrocorticography (ECoG) to answer basic neuroscience questions as well as to develop tools for clinical and rehabilitative applications. Felix Darvas, PhD, is a research assistant professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery. Current ECoG studies involve implanting assorted electrode arrays onto the surface of the brain and through biofeedback, testing the capacity of patients to control the specificity of their brainwaves at an electrode location.
Furthermore, over the course of several days of practice, it has been shown that a subject's precision and accuracy greatly increase. Utilizing a 24-channel passive electrode system, the electroencephalography (EEG) studies seek to differentiate the high gamma signals of motor mirror neurons when the subject views a hand movement versus a bush moving. Future experiments may involve increasingly humanoid objects in order to further characterize movement-observation response and test the hypothesis of whether our response to movement is stronger, the more physically pertinent the movement is. Paralysis is one of the most debilitating effects of central nervous system injuries and disorders and with an estimated 5.6 million people with some degree of paralysis in the United States, the need for re-enablement grows. Most current BCIs seek to use the slow P300 brainwave, that arises from active expectation, but few current BCI proposals utilize only brain signals and fewer still focus on the promise of the faster high gamma brainwaves, that appear to represent movement, movement-thought, and movement-imagery.
Using linear and nonlinear measures of motor function, with feedback, to control a prosthetic hand. Supports a group of imaging resources including using fMRI to guide and inform motor BCI studies. Denver, CO – After last year’s audiophile love in, the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) was my number one iCal Work Calendar appointment for 2012. Now in its ninth year, RMAF continues to be organized in the most professional and indefatigable fashion by the amazing Marjorie Baumert and her army of dedicated volunteers. The flight from Toronto’s YYZ was smooth and bump free, captained by an affable fellow who looked like he was just out of short pants.
I was just in time to do a quick check in to the Denver Marriott Tech Center, an 80’s looking, solid hotel, with comfortable rooms and large, open convention spaces, before the opening party started.
It was on the CanJam floor where a lot of exciting developments in personal audio was in evidence.
Talking of arms, Tri-Planar (photographed below) was in attendance as well as seen and heard used by turntable manufacturers.
My good friend (and happily married) Mike Mercer grabbing a quick kiss with Debby Wilson of Wilson Audio.
My comment in our recent TAVES report regarding the never ending choice of Diana Krall and a million other mediocre female vocal talents was repeated here in the Mile High City.
It is not a coincidence (and certainly not because of my predilections) that the Best Sound of Show winners played amazing music that highlighted the equipment and understood the vagaries of room acoustics.
As you’ll see from the photos below, many manufacturers teamed up with other makers and created little oases of calm. Veloce Audio's kit was a great match with the uber expensive YG Acoustics loudspeakers. None of these lovely speakers could sound the way they did without the very best in ancillary equipment. Paired with Vitus electronics from Denmark, my CD show purchase of Illinois Jacquet’s ‘Swings the Thing’ sounded wonderful. It’s a fabulous speaker, especially as heard here accompanied by the wonderful VTL Siegfried mono block amplifiers and a phalanx of digital dCS gear. I heard some of Wilson’s personal recordings (by Peter McGrath) and they were very good (but one did remind me that capturing a great soprano on full throttle can be difficult), but the Sony recording of Schubert piano music played by Arcadi Volodos was unbelievably good.
Fosgate Signature Tube Headphone Amplifier, circuit design by Jim Fosgate, industrial design by Fred Hulen, and manufactured by Musical Surroundings ($1.5K).
As usual, a SPECTACULAR show report that doesn’t read like a laundry list – but a human perspective on an industry based around passionate music lovers and audio hobbyists! Quick Correction: The Audeze planar magnetic headphones you loved were in fact the LCD3’s ($1,900) but the LCD2 IS the planar magnetic can that put them on the map!! We’ve received lovely emails and tweets about the report and how wonderful the show was. I just did an informal survey with my wife on the most beautiful turntable on Turntable Wednesday. Anthony – now the wifey (after hearing your response, which I read to her – she sends her love btw) says the bromance is in full effect!
Hey Anthony, thanks for the mention, although in the pic that’s our (Perreaux) new Audiant DP32 USB DAC Preamp (top) and matching 100p Stereo Power Amp (bottom). To be fair, they do look similar, however the DP32 will show the sample rate on the right hand side of the display, whereas the integrated 80i will not.

When PowerFULL first came out you would have to take 12-15 capsules per day in order to receive the benefits.
Body Pro Supplements is a 100% Australian owned & operated nutritional supplements store. Vacuum tubes, a pneumatic pump and gauges, a magneto, copper tubing, a digital clock, and a steam engine are integrated into this piece.
This commissioned piece is presently on permanent display at the Conger Street Clock Museum, located in Eugene, OR. Consider "Dieselpunk" in design, maybe even more "Atomicpunk", however a steam engine is part of this work. To measure gamma radiation, a Victoreen Model 6A Geiger counter and a Bendix CDV-742 Civil Defense radiological dosimeter are installed. Attached to the cabinet sides are, a vintage Brunswick phonograph pick-up, a Clayton & Lambert MFG. The base of this work mounted on a metal pipe framework, is a 1950 Buick Roadmaster "Bucktooth Buick" grille & bumper.
Rao, PhD, is an associate professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. Eberhard Fetz is a Professor in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at UW, and is the principal investigator on the Keck Foundation grant. His main interest is in computer modeling of the electrical activity of the brain under normal and diseased conditions and its application to epilepsy.
He spent eight weeks in the GRID Lab, presenting papers, learning MATLAB (a computer programming language), and creating the lab website, among other work.
Tests involve moving a cursor toward a location based on a bimodal characterization of brainwaves, though tests have suggested that a subject may be able to accurately control an object within a multimodal model, moving it towards up to five different locations. These brain-computer interface learning curves are being compared with motor movement learning curves. Research has shown that beta waves are generally suppressed upon observation of movement however, when seeing a moving bush, beta waves have been found to rebound after suppression. Almost 1.3 million have suffered a form of spinal cord injury, often producing complete loss of muscle control beneath the point of injury. Using cutting edge technology and the two-pronged approach of EEG and ECoG, it is the mission of the Ojemann laboratory to characterize these high gamma brainwaves in order to significantly improve the speed and efficacy of neuroprosthetics, that may one day restore limb function to paralyzed patients. Cortical activity during motor execution, motor imagery, and imagery-based online feedback. Robust, long-term control of an electrocorticographic brain-computer interface with fixed parameters. Decoupling the cortical power spectrum reveals real-time representation of individual finger movements in humans. Electrocorticographic spectral changes associated with ipsilateral individual finger and whole hand movement. Localization and classification of phonemes using high spatial resolution electrocorticography (ECoG) grids.

Companies like CEntrance and Audeze are producing very exciting products that are priced reasonably and bring high end sound to your desktop and even to headphones.
Even though the hotel is pretty good as far as solid rooms, ambient sound, hallway noise, crowd chat, and small rooms really impede our ability to offer anything but general comments.
Sadly, many of the exhibitors added gravelly voiced male singers accompanied by a few acoustic instruments. Good lighting (with a couple of rooms lit like a tart’s bedroom), acoustic and power treatment, lots of paper information and kind smiles were the norm. I did manage to visit each room twice, once informally for chat and photographs (for the quality of which I’ll apologize for now as the iOS6 on my iPhone 5 gave me nothing but trouble.
I mentioned that DACs, media servers with iPads (and other tablets) ruled the day over CD players. Superb Audio Research kit was everywhere but there were some lovely, smaller scale amps that sounded superb.
They’re not flashy, look a lot different than your run of the mill boxes (I love the look), and will give years of musical pleasure. Here, as in many other shows, the products were a unified whole and sounded completely in concert. Tuned very successfully for a specific audiophile demographic (I call it ‘ziss, boom, bah’ — ultra resolved, kaleidoscopic with never ending power), Wilson Audio speakers for my taste looked as cold as they sounded.
The Alexia’s retain all that is good in Wilsonland — power and incredible resolution, but they play music so beautifully. Some of the best sounds I’ve heard from a speaker and certainly the best piano tone, both attack and the decay, in my experience. We’ll be publishing more photos with caption info Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week. Not sure how it would stack up against today’s modern preamps, but it was certainly treasured in its day. Whether it´s stress from work, the gym, your girlfriend or even food your body always reacts with hormones.
Compared to our 532 nm laser, this laser emits light at 470 nm, which is lower in wavelength. It was designed to be generated using a special tube called a monoscope, a CRT which had a metal plate target on which the pattern was printed. Some of the typewriter mechanical controls have been converted to computer keyboard commands to escape, option, control, "apple", caps locks and return since there are only 43 keys.
Using antique mechanical items on display from the museum, a concept was developed and assembled over a  9 month period. On the back side, installed is a stainless steel hot water tank to hold compressed air for engine operations, brass decorative pieces and early electronic test equipment plug and fuse.


Hardware include a c.1893 Hammond Model 2 typewriter* with the curved "IDEAL" layout with a USB interface installed as the keyboard. With the activation of toggle & push button switches, a demonstration of the functions of the contraption can be performed. Mounted below, a Roland XP-10 synthesizer keyboard with the main circuit control board mounted behind. An input panel for 120 V AC line-in, telephone line-in, L & R stereo out, a control switch and fuse holder. The "pelvic massage" was especially common inthe treatment of female hysteria in Great Britain during the Victorian Era, as the pointof such manipulation was to cause "hysterical paroxysm" (orgasm) in the patient. He earned his medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine in 2008 and completed residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Washington. Melissa received her bachelora€™s degree in cellular biology from Western Washington University. The primary goal of his research is to discover the computational principles underlying the brain's remarkable ability to learn, process and store information, and to apply this knowledge to the task of building adaptive robotic systems.
His team is working on a tiny implantable computer to record from and stimulate the brain, spinal cord and muscles.
He has built 3-D anatomically realistic models of human heads which are being used all over the world for modeling of the electrical activity of human brain.
His areas of research interest include electrocortiocography mapping with multilingual patients. Neuroprosthetics or brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are devices that record neural activity from specific brain regions and convert that information to drive limb prostheses. I bumped into Benjamin Zwickel and Hilary Klein of Mojo Audio, Pittsburgh’s finest cables! These $5K ‘tables are made of exotic wood and are a wonderful match with Moerch tonearms. The exhibitors presented their kit very professionally, were incredibly welcoming (and patient) with the punters (and trade). Surprise, surprise, the best sounding rooms chose appropriate, quality repertoire for the speakers.
Yes, the instruments sounded good, but the voices singing their puerile music have got to go.
The Zanden Audio CD Player Model 2500 was extraordinary in its looks and information resolution. You’ve already seen photos of excellent equipment that sounded great, but the following manufacturers really got their act together.
The intimacy created from Mojo Audio’s DAC and Media Server, driven by Border Patrol amplification into Volti Audio’s single driver, Veretta Loudspeaker was almost tactile. The gear was professionally presented by Luke Manley of VTL and Debby Wilson of Wilson Audio.
This sound ‘design’ was modified by Wilson (after a six month world tour of the greatest concert halls) in his smaller Sasha loudspeaker and has continued in spectacular fashion with the new Alexia Loudspeaker ($48K). Its still unclear if Anthony noticed Hilary’s Mojo Audio name tag or if he saw a pretty woman that he wanted to get to know better. The research I am doing is in the concentration of physical chemistry, and while I still work with chemicals and follow standard safety procedures, one aspect of the Wustholz lab differs from the stereotypical chemistry lab: we work with lasers. According to physics and mathematics, using a laser with a smaller wavelength (?) results in higher energy (E).
The black lines of the pattern would interrupt current flow as the pattern was scanned to provide the desired video output.
Left side, is a Metronoma electronic metronome, a Mark-Time coin timer and a 1" brass hand air pump to run the smaller steam engine. A late 1800's Pearl frank (used for "franking" checks), is repurposed into a mouse with leather mouse pad.
A vacuum gauge that can be adjusted via the brass lever on the side, an RCA vacuum tube illuminated with an amber LED, a brass bank vault timer clock, a small Kodak autograph camera that will close flat into the base piece and a Pyrex laboratory glass jar filled with water, illuminated with an amber LED, and with the pump mounted on the back of the piece, to pump air though the copper coil. His laboratory focuses on the signals obtained from patients with subdural electrodes implanted for the localization of intractable seizures.
Originally from Colorado, he holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder. That the show takes place in Denver, CO, one of the loveliest, cleanest cities in the US, is a very pleasant benefit. We had a lovely time and after dinner I was invited into the Mojo Audio room to hear the system being used.
I find them claustrophobic and usually unmusical, at least in the replication of spatially correct musical experiences.
Lots of companies, both startups and legacy are doing USB DACs, and others doing music servers. I heard some Bach organ music through Dynaudio speakers and the music was incredibly dynamic with exceptional rhythmic thrust.
The combinations were so musical that even the drone of excited audiophiles couldn’t harm them.
As in Toronto, if a punter requests something, fine, but represent your amazing speakers with equitable repertoire and talent.
The sound did vary considerably, but we’ll give all the less-than-good sounding rooms a pass under these conditions.
And, monsters like the AirTight monos and the stunning looking Audio Power Labs were there in force. Whether system synergy, a lucky room in a quiet corner where the ambient noise was minimized, a larger room with better acoustics, snake oil or pixie dust, I very much enjoyed the sounds in the following rooms.
I listened four times and each time the sound was very refined, pure of spirit, and felt like a cool stream on a steamy day. Filled to the brim with high art engineering, the sound delivered to the speakers was very dynamic, but it was the refinement of sound listening to a Haydn String Quartet that really wowed me.
I’d like to thank German Physik’s Robert Kelly for his patient and very professional explanation of the products’ technology. The AirTight Monoblocks (the final product as the chief designer is retiring) offered the sweetest sound in addition to their seemingly unlimited power.
The people in this business have endless energy and endless passion and to hear the sounds they convert from electrons into music is truly humbling.
And getting to know you through shows and our beloved internet, has been one of the highlights.
In any case, if you were wondering what I look like so drunk on wine I can hardly walk, Anthony took a photo of me for all posterity.
As you may know, L-Dopa could never duplicate its scientific performance in the real world. Because of this, our 470nm laser provides us with new energies to observe single molecules with! These tubes could only handle black and white - no shades of grey hence they had to be simulated either with a halftone dot pattern or with patterns of fine lines. Along the bottom are the radio speakers with brass clock gears as speaker grills.The base of the piece measures close to 5' W x 4'6" H x 6" D and weighs around 350 lbs. The calculator will start, the pneumatic bellows will pump and the Jacob's Ladder electrifies as the piece is compiling the query and predicting the seekers fortune.
The keyboard mode control panel with a UA-IN16 Nixie tube clock, (former USSR tubes are used) are mounted on the left side. An antenna, tuning dial, a Civil Defense sign and a Sure 2 X 25 watt stereo amp mounted on the side provides sound to mid range & twitter speakers which are installed inside the back of each bumper guard.
Freud also believed that all tension was due to the build up of libido (sexual energy) and that all pleasure came from its discharge. Ojemann, represents researchers from a wide range of backgrounds including neurosurgery, neurology, rehabilitative medicine, engineering, neuroscience, and physics. He lives in Seattle with his wife and two kids and loves to spend time with family and friends, and to read, bicycle, hike, sail, and make beer.
He uses a combination of probabilistic techniques, computer simulations, and collaborative neurobiological experiments. He also works with high density (256 channel) scalp EEG and cortical (EcoG) data for noninvasive epilepsy detection and language mapping. If you are ready to take the digital leap of faith and have the scratch, the Light Harmonic Da Vinci 384K USB Digital to Analog Converter is a must listen. That you are one of the most insightful, funny, knowledgeable audiophiles and music lovers I know, makes attending the shows an educational and very fun event. This is especially useful when trying to determine if dye molecules undergo Excited State Intramolecular Proton Transfer (ESIPT). On top, a Nixie tube clock for timekeeping, brass clock mechanism, sewing machine lamp and a 1930's Art Deco Baby Brownie Kodak bakelite camera repurposed into a videophone camera.
After 5 to 8 seconds, this electro-mechanical action will stop and a fortune card will eject from the piece. A sound studio instrumentation pick-up with a "REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT" placard and a SAC decal are mounted at the end. Such an interdisciplinary approach has provided functional interpretations of several otherwise puzzling neurobiological properties while at the same time suggesting biologically-inspired solutions to problems in computer vision, robotics and artificial intelligence. He currently holds an affiliate professorship in electrical engineering at the UW and professor of bioengineering at Reykjavik University in Iceland.
Zwickel, always the perfectionist, was not too happy with the sound (the same as most exhibitors at the beginning of the show — Saturday and Sunday are the days many rooms begin to sing), although I was really enjoying the Mojo Audio DAC and Media Server with the superb Volti Audio Veretta loudspeakers (a company that debuted at the show only last year!).
I enjoyed the well executed DAC from Light Harmonic, the $20K Da Vinci 384K USB DAC — a futuristic monster of a DAC that looks amazing and sounds exquisite. Cary Audio had its beautiful Classic Series on show an introduced its new line of lower price point Audio Electronics products. When a molecule is hit with a photon, or light, the increase in energy causes the molecule to jump up to an excited state, indicated on the following image by (*). There are 50 different fortunes, 15 from the original "Nick of Time" Twilight Zone episode. The back of each fortune card displays 1 of 10 different vintage fortune teller images.
His background includes a degree in Physics from Princeton University, medical school and residency at Washington University in St. In order to establish usable control signals for BCI, he has also studied the human motor system extensively.
Through these studies, he and his collaborators seek to gain a better understanding the natural physiology of the DMN with the hope that this will lead to a greater mechanistic understanding of how DMN dysfunction contributes to various brain diseases. It is a fanless, standalone digital audio transport system, with SOtM USB output for USB DACs. With help from the best herbal research scientists in the world, Striviti Research (we have worldwide exclusive rights to their research), we were not only able to find a reliable source for the raw ingredients in PowerFULL, but we improved the extraction process so much that now you only need 3-4 capsules a day to equal 12-15 of the old formula.


In other words, a proton is transferred intramolecularly while in it’s excited state.
The Oregon "H-BOMB" license plate flips downward to revile a Audiovox, Model D2017 10.2" LCD color monitor (wanted to use a 5" CRT color TV chassis, but this was not feasible).
However, in order for ESIPT to happen, the molecule must first overcome an energy barrier as seen in the diagram. Copper tubing and miscellaneous vintage electronic & mechanical parts complete this piece. If you are an audiophile and music lover, the Rocky Mountain Audio Show should be your one must attend event. We are hoping that our 470 nm laser will give our molecules enough energy for ESIPT at the single molecule level. Since our this is a new laser in our lab, we were unsure of the relationship between the intensity knob and the power, so the first task to be completed was to perform power tests. The overall power reaching our sample is dependent on the intensity knob, wave plate setting, and type of filter on the optics. 689-692 (1962)A Human Perception of Illumination with Pulsed Ultrahigh-Frequency Electromagnetic Energyby Allan Frey, Science, Vol. Because there are three variables contributing to our outcome, the power tests needed to be thorough and meticulous.
Spending the extra time at the beginning of the summer to complete comprehensive power tests allowed us to study our dye at different powers without having to pause our experiments regularly to find new powers. Baker, Youth Action Newsletter, Dec 1994.A "A nation can survive its' fools, and even the ambitious. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor--He speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation--he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city--he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
The CIA also claims it is not obligated to provide the veterans with medical care for side effects of the drugs.
Its the CIAs third attempt to get the case dismissed.In a 2009 federal lawsuit, Vietnam Veterans of America claimed that the Army and CIA had used at least 7,800 soldiers as guinea pigs in Project Paperclip. They were given at least 250 and as many as 400 types of drugs, among them sarin, one of the most deadly drugs known to man, amphetamines, barbiturates, mustard gas, phosgene gas and LSD.Among the projects goals were to control human behavior, develop drugs that would cause confusion, promote weakness or temporarily cause loss of hearing or vision, create a drug to induce hypnosis and identify drugs that could enhance a persons ability to withstand torture.
The suit was filed in federal court in San Francisco against the Department of Defense and the CIA. The plaintiffs seek to force the government to contact all the subjects of the experiments and give them proper health care.
Department of Veterans Affairs released a pamphlet said nearly 7,000 soldiers had been involved and more than 250 chemicals used on them, including hallucinogens such as LSD and PCP as well as biological and chemical agents. According to the lawsuit, some of the volunteers were even implanted with electrical devices in an effort to control their behavior. Rochelle, 60, who has come back to live in Onslow County, said in an interview Saturday that there were about two dozen volunteers when he was taken to Edgewood. They were told that the experiments were harmless and that their health would be carefully monitored, not just during the tests but afterward, too. The doctors running the experiments, though, couldnt have known the drugs were safe, because safety was one of the things they were trying to find out, Rochelle said. The veterans say they volunteered for military experiments as part of a wide-ranging program started in the 1950s to test nerve agents, biological weapons and mind-control techniques, but were not properly informed of the nature of the experiments.
They blame the experiments for poor health and are demanding the government provide their health care.
In virtually all cases, troops served in the same capacity as laboratory rats or guinea pigs, the lawsuit states. The suit contends that veterans were wrongfully used as test subjects in experiments such as MK-ULTRA, a CIA project from the 1950s and 60s that involved brainwashing and administering experimental drugs like LSD to unsuspecting individuals. The project was the target of several congressional inquiries in the 1970s and was tied to at least one death. Harf said that MK-ULTRA was thoroughly investigated and the CIA fully cooperated with each of the investigations. The plaintiffs say many of the volunteers records have been destroyed or remain sealed as top secret documents. They also say they were denied medals and other citations they were promised for participating in the experiments.
They are not seeking monetary damages but have demanded access to health care for veterans they say were turned away at Department of Veterans Affairs facilities because they could not prove their ailments were related to their military service. It grew out of the Agencys Operation BLACKBIRD and was a forerunner to the Agencys MKULTRA. Project ARTICHOKE also known as Operation ARTICHOKE was run by the CIAs Office of Scientific Intelligence. ARTICHOKE offensive mind control techniques experiments attempted to induce amnesia and highly suggestive states in its subjects.
ARTICHOKE focused on the use of hypnosis, forced morphine addiction, forced morphine addiction withdrawal, along with other drugs, chemicals, and techniques.
The main focus of the program was summarized in a January 1952 CIA memo, Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature, such as self-preservation?One program experiment attempted to see if it was possible to produce a Manchurian Candidate.
In Richard Condons 1959 novel The Manchurian Candidate an American soldier, who has been placed into a hypnotic state by Communist forces, returns home to assassinate on command. A January 1954 CIA report asks the question, Can an individual of [redacted] descent be made to perform an act of attempted assassination involuntarily under the influence of ARTICHOKE? Argued December 4, 1984 Decided April 16, 1985 .Between 1953 and 1966, the Central Intelligence Agency financed a wide-ranging project, code-named MKULTRA, concerned with the research and development of chemical, biological, and radiological materials capable of employment in clandestine operations to control human behavior.
159, 162] program consisted of some 149 subprojects which the Agency contracted out to various universities, research foundations, and similar institutions. Because the Agency funded MKULTRA indirectly, many of the participating individuals were unaware that they were dealing with the Agency.MKULTRA was established to counter perceived Soviet and Chinese advances in brainwashing and interrogation techniques. Over the years the program included various medical and psychological experiments, some of which led to untoward results.
These aspects of MKULTRA surfaced publicly during the 1970's and became the subject of executive and congressional investigations. Argued April 21, 1987 Decided June 25, 1987 Respondent, a serviceman, volunteered for what was ostensibly a chemical warfare testing program, but in which he was secretly administered lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) pursuant to an Army plan to test the effects of the drug on human subjects, whereby he suffered severe personality changes that led to his discharge and the dissolution of his marriage. Upon being informed by the Army that he had been given LSD, respondent filed a Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) suit. The District Court granted the Government summary judgment on the ground that the suit was barred by the doctrine of Feres v. 135 , which precludes governmental FTCA liability for injuries to servicemen resulting from activity incident to service. Although agreeing with this holding, the Court of Appeals remanded the case upon concluding that respondent had at least a colorable constitutional claim under the doctrine of Bivens v.
388 , whereby a violation of constitutional rights can give rise to a damages action against the offending federal officials even in the absence of a statute authorizing such relief, unless there are special factors counselling hesitation or an explicit congressional declaration of another, exclusive remedy. Respondent then amended his complaint to add Bivens claims and attempted to resurrect his FTCA claim.
Although dismissing the latter claim, the District Court refused to dismiss the Bivens claims, rejecting, inter alia, the Governments argument that the same considerations giving rise to the Feres doctrine should constitute special factors barring a Bivens action.In February 1958, James B.
Stanley, a master sergeant in the Army stationed at Fort Knox, Kentucky, volunteered to participate in a program ostensibly designed to test the effectiveness of protective clothing and equipment as defenses against chemical warfare.
He was released from his then-current duties and went to the Armys Chemical Warfare Laboratories at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland.
Four times that month, Stanley was secretly administered doses of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), pursuant to an Army plan to study the effects of the drug on human subjects.
According to his Second Amended Complaint (the allegations of which we accept for purposes of this decision), as a result of the LSD exposure, Stanley has suffered from hallucinations and periods of incoherence and memory loss, was impaired in his military performance, and would on occasion awake from sleep at night and, without reason, violently beat his wife and children, later being unable to recall the entire incident. One year later, his marriage dissolved because of the personality changes wrought by the LSD.
December 10, 1975, the Army sent Stanley a letter soliciting his cooperation in a study of the long-term effects of LSD on volunteers who participated in the 1958 tests. 669, 672] This was the Governments first notification to Stanley that he had been given LSD during his time in Maryland. 2671 et seq., alleging negligence in the administration, supervision, and subsequent monitoring of the drug testing program. Ewen Cameron): The man who I had thought cared about what happened to me didnt give a damn. Ewen Cameron conducted CIA-funded experiments on troubled Canadian patients he was meant to help MacIntyre: the CIA caved in the day before the trial was to begin. They settled out of court for $750,000 at the time it was the largest settlement the CIA had ever awarded. 28, 1984 (digital clip) It sounds like a science fiction plot or a horror movie: A front organization for the American CIA sets up shop in Canada to engage in mind control experiments. But its no fiction, its the discussion on the floor of the House of Commons and among lawyers for the Department of External Affairs.
Canadians caught up in the research, including a member of Parliaments wife, may finally get some action from the government in their pursuit of answers and compensation. Recruited Ex-Nazis By SAM ROBERTS December 11, 2010 After World War II, American counterintelligence recruited former Gestapo officers, SS veterans and Nazi collaborators to an even greater extent than had been previously disclosed and helped many of them avoid prosecution or looked the other way when they escaped, according to thousands of newly declassified documents. Men who were classified as ardent Nazis were chosen just weeks after Hitlers defeat to become respectable U.S. Reinhard Gehlen (middle) and his SS united were hired, and swiftly became agents of the CIA when they revealed their massive records on the Soviet Union to the US. The men designed the CIAs interrogation program and also personally took part in the waterboarding sessions.
But to do the job, the CIA had to promise to cover at least $5 million in legal fees for them in case there was trouble down the road, former U.S. For the simple reason that it would inexorably lead to the covert biological war programmes of the 1950's. According to CIA documents, K indicates both knockout and kill, depending upon the circumstances under which researched biological products were employed by CIA operatives in the field operations conducted under Project Artichoke and later programs.
