The human mind is full of stuff we have barely scratched the surface on. This could be really cool.

This would definitely be cool.

That's fucking cool. Most advances in neuropsychology are the result of accidents. This guy should be happy it happened in a surgical room and not on a construction site.

It's going to suck for the people that go in for memory stimulation and instead have their appetite permanently triggered.

I think read this before. Oh yeah, it was called Terminal Man, by Crichton written in '72. They basically did the exact same thing as the brain pacemaker concept but with results that made for a mildly interesting book.
I guess if they have people with really nothing to lose or who willingly sign up, then go for it.
