Radio intra-cerebral control via implants (including sinus implants) developed by the CIA


Excerpt from book by Alex Constantine 


"The Microwave Mafia often rely on the implantation of miniaturized radio receivers. The technique is known as intra-cerebral control and uses radio or ultra-sound. It was developed by the CIA's MKDRACO and HATTER brain telemetry projects. The implantation of a micro-receiver in the frontal of temporal lobes by trained teams in operatives is done with an “encaphalator”, usually through the sinuses of a drugged subject (43)*."







CIA's Radio Hypnotic Intracerebral Control (RHIC): brain entrainment using microwaves modulated with frequencies conducive to hypnosis

(Possibility of use of hypnoidal EEG frequencies)



> RHIC in literature: first mention by former FBI agent and journalist


The term Radio Hypnotic Intracerebral Control (RHIC) first appeared according to this reference [36] in the book entitled "Were We Controlled?" written in 1969 by L. Lawrence, former FBI agent and journalist. He described it as (p.38) "the ultra-sophisticated application of post-hypnotic suggestion triggered at will by radio transmission. It is a recurring state, re-induced automatically at intervals by the same radio control. An individual is brought under hypnosis. This can be done either with his knowledge — or without it — by use of narco-hypnosis, which can be brought into play under many guises. He is then programmed to perform certain actions and maintain certain attitudes upon radio signal."


The content of "Were We Controlled?" is included in this book (beginning of above excerpt is highlighted).  The author of the additional content, Kenn Thomas, mentions that the beginning of the book gives the science and history of RHIC/EDOM, "which it claims grew out of the work of Yale professor Jose Delgado". A section below refers to a pubication of Delgado's "Intracerebral Radio Stimulation and Recording". K. Thomas also comments that Delgado's work has "roots in Russian neurology and radio control of the brain, and in the 1930s Soviet study of hypnogenic mental suggestion". 


The RHIC technique has also been mentioned according to this reference "by Walter Bowart in Operation Mind Control, and journalist James Moore, who, in a 1975 issue of a periodical called Modern People, claimed to have secured a 350-page manual, prepared in 1963, on RHIC-EDOM [37]. He maintains that he received the manual from CIA sources, although — interestingly — the technique is said to have originated in the military."


Lawrence also stated that "there is already in use a small EDOM generator-transmitter which can be concealed on the body of a person. Contact with this person — a casual handshake or even just a touch — transmits a tiny electronic charge plus an ultra-sonic signal tone which for a short while will disturb the time orientation of the person affected [39]". It is noted that the sentiment of "missing time" is reported by experimentation abductees (cf. alien abductions).


An excerpt related to RHIC can be found at the book by J.Keith:


It is noted by this reference that "RHIC-EDOM is described by both Lawrence and Moore as a product of military research; Gottlieb spoke only of matters pertaining to CIA."






> MKULTRA director asked about RHIC in Congressional Hearing (1977)



As mentioned at the MKULTRA section, following the discovery by the CIA of MKULTRA documents in response to a FOIA request, two Congressional hearings took place. In the second one, which was held before the the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research of the Committee on Human Resources on Sept. 20 and 21, 1977, Senator Schweiker asked the MKULTRA director about the notion of "Radio-Hypnotic Intracerebral Control" ("RHIC"), a combination of radio transmission and hypnosis.



(1) Senator Schweiker would be the 14th U.S. Secretary of Health (1981-83)

(2) The Senate Committee of Human Resources is currently the "Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions" (abbrev. HELP) 
Excerpts from the transcript (
Schweiker: Some of the projects under MK-ULTRA involved hypnosis, is that correct?
Gottlieb: Yes.
Schweiker: Did any of these projects involve something called radio-hypnotic-intra-cerebral control, which is a combination, as I understand it, in layman's terms, of radio transmission and hypnosis?
Gottlieb: My answer is “No”.
Schweiker: None whatsoever?
Gottlieb: Well, I am trying to be responsive to the terms that you used. As I remember it, there was a current interest, running interest, all the time in what affects people's standing in the field of radio energy have, and it could easily have been that somewhere in many projects, someone was trying to see if you could hypnotize someone easier if he was standing in a radio beam. That would seem like a reasonable piece of research to do.
What I am saying, I do not see that being the focus of a large interest or successful result come out of this.

Allegation on the use of the 4.5 Hz (theta) rhythm on human subjects


Ross Adey, who published that ELF/EEG frequencies modulated on a carrier wave can be impressed on the brain, is alleged to have imposed a 4.5 Hz (theta) frequency on his subjects. This was a frequency he had measured from the hippocampus etc. - relevance to information consolidation and conditioning
"Ross Adey induces calcium efflux in brain tissue with low power level fields (a basis for the CIA and military's "confusion weaponry") and has done behavioral experiments with radar modulated at electroencephalogram (EEG) rhythms. He is understandably concerned about environmental exposures within 1 to 30 Hz (cycles per second), either as a low frequency or an amplitude modulation on a microwave or radio frequency, as these can physiologically interact with the brain even at very low power densities."
"Remotely Reinforcing Specific Brain Rhythms"
"Dr. Ross Adey, formerly of the Brain Research Center at University of Southern California, Los Angeles, now at Loma Linda University Medical School, Loma Linda, California, was among the first of the Pandora researchers. His work is more precise in inducing specific behavior, rather than merely causing disorganization or decrements in performance -that is, apart from his studies on inducing calcium efflux in brain tissue, which causes interference with the functioning of the brain and is one basis of "confusion weaponry.""
"More specifically, Adey's thesis is that if the electroencephalogram (EEG) has informational significance, one can induce behavioral changes if one imposes environmental fields that look like EEG. During Adey's career, he has correlated a wide variety of behavioral states with EEG, including emotional states (e.g., stress in hostile questioning), increments of decision making and conditioning, correct versus incorrect performance, etc., and he has imposed electromagnetic fields that look like EEG, which has resulted in altered EEG and behavior."
"In published accounts of Adey's work, he has shown that it is possible to apply low biologic frequencies by using a radio frequency carrier modulated at specific brain frequencies. He demonstrated that if the biological modulation on the carrier frequency is close to frequencies in the natural EEG of the subject, it will reinforce or increase the number of manifestations of the imposed rhythms, and modulate behavior. The conditioning paradigm: animals were trained through aversion to produce specific brain wave rhythms; animals trained in a field with the same rhythm amplitude modulated on it, differed significantly from control animals in both accuracy and resistance to extinction (at least 50 days versus 10 in the controls). When the fields were used on untrained animals, occurrence of the applied rhythm increased in the animals' EEG."
"Dr. Adey is an accomplished scientist, which leads one to believe the significance of this experiment goes beyond mere reinforcement of the animal's brain waves. Did the rhythms that he chose to apply have special significance with relation to information processing or conditioning? The 4.5 theta rhythm that he applied was the natural reoccuring frequency that he had measured in the hippocampus during a phase of avoidance learning. The hippocampus, as Adey wrote in an earlier paper, "...involves neural processes connected with consolidation of memory traces. It relates closely to the need for focusing attention, and the degree to which recapitulation of past experience is imposed." One might add, to ensure survival."
"Does it follow that an EEG modulated carrier frequency can be used to enhance human avoidance learning? You bet, provided the same careful procedures are followed with humans as were with animals, the same result would accrue. Recall again the goals of Pandora - to discover whether a carefully constructed electromagnetic signal could direct the mind. The obvious question becomes, how many and with how much accuracy can behavioral states or "frames of mind" be intentionally imposed, that is, apart from the certain technological capability to promote disorganization and degradation of perception and performance through use of the fields".
"Remote Mind Control Technology" by Anna Keeler - chapter from the book "Secret and Suppressed: Banned Ideas and Hidden History" (



Adey et al discover slow-wave theta rhythms which may "actively subserve the integration of information", a process known as consolidation, as well as conditioning



When Adey presented cats to a setting with a concealed reward, he observed the appearance of a slow wave rhythm of 4.6 Hz in the hippocampus and an adjacent cortex location which he attributed to transition to an alert state and readiness to act. When cats were trained to approach the setting, slow waves accompanied the movement towards it with stabilization in the range of 5–6 Hz.
The publication mentions that Grastyan et al. had suggested that the slow waves may be the electrical signature of a cortex that is inhibited or "switched off", however, this might not apply in this case. Adey, Dunlop and Hendrix had concluded that these slow wave changes "actively subserve the integration of information", a process which is known as consolidation.
Another study from Adey's group:
"Spectral analysis of low frequency components in the electrical activity of the hippocampus during learning"
"The consistency of two characteristics, namely the regular shift of frequencies and the sharpness of the peaks in the approach period in this stage of learning, suggests that these electrographic features are correlated with the consolidation processes of the learned behavior in which the hippocampus plays an important role."

Radio broadcasting using the microwave auditory effect in conjunction with hypnotic control


Microwave auditory effect: from clicks heard by RADAR operators to intelligible speech and to covert uses and weaponization - Combined use with hypnosis

Excerpt from book by R. Becker (
“That the same effect can be used more subtly was demonstrated in 1973 by Dr. Joseph C. Sharp of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. Sharp, serving as a test subject himself, heard and understood spoken words delivered to him in an echo-free isolation chamber via a pulsed-microwave audiogram (an analog of the words' sound vibrations) beamed into his brain."
"Such a device has obvious applications in covert operations designed to drive a target crazy with "voices" or deliver undetectable instructions to a programmed assassin. There are also indications that other pulse frequencies cause similar pressure waves in other tissues, which could disrupt various metabolic processes. A group under R. G. Olsen and J. D. Grissett at the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory in Pensacola has already demonstrated such effects in simulated muscle tissue and has a continuing contract to find beams effective against human tissues.”

Hypnosis - electromagnetic radiation (EMR) interaction experiments in human volunteers in the 1970s (from FOIA request)

Excerpts from book by R. Becker (
"American interest in the hypnosis-EMR interaction was still strong as of 1974, when a research plan was filed to develop useful techniques in human volunteers. The experimenter, J. F. Schapitz, stated: "In this investigation it will be shown that the spoken word of the hypnotist may also be conveyed by modulated electromagnetic energy directly into the subconscious parts of the human brain—i.e., without employing any technical devices for receiving or transcoding the messages and without the person exposed to such influence having a chance to control the information input consciously."
"As a preliminary test of the general concept, Schapitz proposed recording the brain waves induced by specific drugs, then modulating them onto a microwave beam and feeding them back into an undrugged person's brain to see if the same state of consciousness could be produced by the beam alone."
"Schapitz's main protocol consisted of four experiments. In the first, subjects would be given a test of a hundred questions, ranging from easy to technical, so they all would know some but not all of the answers. Later, while in hypnoid states and not knowing they were being irradiated, these people would be subjected to information beams suggesting answers for some of the items they'd left blank, amnesia for some of their correct answers, and memory falsification for other correct answers. A new test would check the results two weeks later."
"The second experiment was to be the implanting of hypnotic suggestions for simple acts, like leaving the lab to buy some particular item, which were to be triggered by a suggested time, spoken word, or sight. Subjects were to be interviewed later. "It may be expected," Schapitz wrote, "that they rationalize their behavior and consider it to be undertaken out of their own free will.""
"In a third test the subjects were to be given two personality tests. Then different responses to certain questions would be repeatedly suggested, and nonpathological personality changes would also be suggested, both to be evaluated by new testing in a month. In some cases the subjects were to be prehypnotized into talking in their sleep, so the microwave programmer could gear the commands to thoughts already in the brain."
"Finally, attempts would be made to produce the standard tests of deep hypnotic trance, such as muscular rigidity, by microwave beams alone."
"Naturally, since this information was voluntarily released via the Freedom of Information Act, it must be taken with a pillar of salt. The results haven't been made public, so the work may have been inconclusive, and the plans may have been released to convince the Soviets and our own public that American mind-control capabilities are greater than they actually are. On the other hand, the actualities may be so far ahead of this research plan that it was tame enough to release in satisfying FOIA requirements."

Personal Radio and Electromagnetic Frequency Allocation (PREMA)


Excerpt from book by Alex Constantine 


"But the current state of the art in Radio-Hypnotic Intracerebral Control (RHIC) depends upon “Personal Radio and Electromagnetic Frequency Allocation,” or PREMA, a frequency unique to the subject's brain. A “reading wand” is hidden near the victim, who is scanned by an instrument smaller than a briefcase. Once the “Freak” is determined, the brain becomes a link in a cybernetic system, and the subject (or a group) can communicate, be surveilled, guided, manipulated, harassed or controlled from afar (44)*."


Please refer to this section


"The mind-invasive technology lurking behind the Star Wars cover story became the fascination of Brian Wronge, a victim of prison experimentation in New York state (45). Wronge claims that the mind control fraternity has developed a “gallium scan” to map electrical activity of the brain, and in concert with a transmitter linked to the nervous system, beam radio-biological signals to an analog computer or satellite."
