stuart gillies asked the Naked Scientists:
Hi, my name is Stuart.
I am currently writing a fictional script about a guy who controls people like puppets using a form of telekinesis, although the film is fictional I would like to try and keep it as real as possible and I was wondering if you would be able to answer two questions for me?
Firstly what part of the brain, if it were possible to actually do it, would allow you to use telekinesis ?
And secondly would it be possible to be shot in said part of the brain, rendering you unable to use telekinesis, without you dying?
any help you could give me would help to make this script more real.
What do you think?
