In 1986 a patient who had their left temporoparietal junction stimulated had the horrible feeling that there was a silent double-person right behind and watching. A few years from now this becomes a standard procedure used on prisoners, giving them the sense that they are constantly being watched. For some it's too unnerving and they become compliant. On the other hand there is suddenly now a crop of brilliant stage actors.
