In an article a couple of weeks ago, the World Economic Forum (“WEF”) detailed a recently discovered part of the brain that monitors for infections and inflammation. This was published in a paper on 5 January. By 26 January, WEF seems to have already decided how they could use it to their advantage.
WEF’s article begins: “Researchers have discovered a previously unknown part of brain anatomy that acts as both a protective barrier and platform from which immune cells monitor the brain for infection and inflammation.”
Immediately after the sentence above, one of WEF’s videos from 2016 was embedded, see below, describing the manipulation of immune system genes found in the brain. Lisa Boulanger, an American neuroscientist and associate professor at Princeton University, explained:
“These immune genes actually have two different roles. One in the immune system. One in the nervous system … We’ve developed a small molecule that we believe targets only the neuronal functions of these proteins.”

WEF’s article then goes on to describe the new discovery. In the middle of detailing the newly discovered part of the brain, WEF embedded a video of a session from Davos 2023, hosted by Atlantic’s CEO Nicholas Thompson, about brain transparency – which is WEF speak for computers reading our minds.
In the video below Nita Farahany from Duke University School of Law “throws light on what the world of brain transparency would look like,” according to WEF.
