  Chinese scientists experiment with remote control of animals  

  

 

    Chinese scientists said they have succeeded in an experiment to remotely control the flight of a pigeon with electronic technology.

    Scientists with the Robot Engineering Technology Research Center of east China's Shandong University of Science and Technology say they implanted micro electrodes in the brain of a pigeon so they can command it to fly right or left or up or down.

    The implants stimulated different areas of the pigeon's brain according to signals sent by the scientists via computer, and forced the bird to comply with their commands.

    It's the first such successful experiment on a pigeon in the world, said the chief scientist Su Xuecheng.

    The electronic signals resemble the signals generated by the brain which control body movement, said Su.

    Su and his colleagues are improving the devices used in the experiment and hope that the technology can be put into practical use in future.

    Su conducted a similar successful experiment on mice in 2005.
