But technology has also gone beyond the wearable in these mechanisms. 
(If anyone else has heard of the HAARP project, please help me out here)

The HAARP (High frequency Active Auroral Research Project)  is a US
military project that zaps the upper atmosphere with a focused and
steerable electromagnetic beam.  It is a reversal of a radio telescope;
antennas send out signals instead of receiving.  It is located in
Glenallen, Alaska.

Without going into a lot of details, (this is researchable on the I-net:
the military version of the project is located at
http://server5550.itd.nrl.navy.mil/projects/haarp and the non-military
scientific version available at http://www.earthpulse.com/haarp/) I will
quote Nick Begich, a geophysicist at the University of Alaska,

"The mental disruption possibilities for HAARP are most disturbing.
Accurately timed, artificially-excited electronic strokes could lead to
a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high power levels over
certain regions of the earth...In this way, one could develop a system
that would seriously impair the brain performance of a very large
population in selected regions over an extended period."

This is a project currently in use.
