Time Travel through Brain Surgery

Scientists have been able to virtually transport a man back in time - simply by stimulating parts of his brain.

A 22-year-old man reported seeing scenes from his family's pizzeria as well as his local train station, all while sitting in a medical room.

Researchers hope the discovery could help them better understand areas of the brain used to retrieve information on locations.

The hallucinations appeared after Pierre M├ęgevand at the Feinstein Institute in New York implanted electrodes into the young man's brain in search of the origin of his epilepsy.
