Remote Control of Brain Activity Using Ultrasound
Subject pretty much says it all.

=Taken from linked page=
Through a recent grant made by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award Program, our research will begin undergoing the next phases of research and development aimed towards engineering future applications using this neurotechnology for our country’s warfighters. Here, we will continue exploring the influence of ultrasound on brain function and begin using transducer phased arrays to examine the influence of focused ultrasound on intact brain circuits. We will also be investigating the use of capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers (CMUTs) for use in brain stimulation. Finally, to improve upon spatial resolution, we will examine the use of acoustic metamaterials and hyperlenses to study how subdiffraction limited ultrasound influences brain wave activity patterns.

How can this technology be used to provide our nation’s Warfighters with strategic advantages? We have developed working and conceptual prototypes in which ballistic helmets can be fitted with ultrasound transducers and microcontroller devices to illustrate potential applications as shown below. We look forward to developing a close working relationship with DARPA and other Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Communities to bring some of these applications to fruition over the coming years depending on the most pressing needs of our country’s defense industries.

What are some of the potential applications? Neurological/psychiatric intervention, navigational commands/assistance, long-term alertness/wakefulness, behavioral reinforcement, anxiety/stress reduction, cognitive enhancement, pain intervention, TBI protection. I agree with one of the comment posters that this is a step toward AI, mind/machine uploading stuff. Some of the comments are interesting also. Allegedly, one of them is a victim/subject of this type of research development. Check it out.
“Through me you pass into the city of woe:
Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.
Justice the founder of my fabric moved:
To rear me was the task of Power divine,
Supremest Wisdom, and primeval Love.
Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”

Re: Remote Control of Brain Activity Using Ultrasound
This is old. Haarp has already shown what low frequency alterations can do to the body/brain. Read some of the early research done.
