Genetic modifications that you make, especially to the brain structures 
that induce the resulting brain to make similar such genetic 
alterations to brain structures as well. I want to try this out with 
rats, having them tap into some viral gene therapy on a lab on a chip 
in their head, with a neural interface, and then letting them run wild 
and see what emerges.
