Normally, we hear sounds only when they make our eardrums vibrate. The vibrations cause nerve hairs in the inner ear to shiver, and that triggers electric signals that travel along the auditory nerve into the brain. One of their first stops is a patch of gray matter called the auditory cortex.
Each nerve hair is tuned to a particular frequency of sound and excites only certain neurons in the auditory cortex. As a result, the neurons in the auditory cortex form what is known as a tone map. The neurons at one end of the auditory cortex are tuned to low frequencies; the farther you go toward the other end, the higher the tuning of the neurons.
This sound system comes with an elaborate feedback mechanism. Neurons do more than just relay signals forward into the brain. They also signal back down the line, reaching out to neighboring neurons tuned to nearby frequencies, exciting some and muzzling others.

Human Auditory Perception of Pulsed Radiofrequency Energy
Motorola Florida Research Laboratories
The earliest report we have found on the auditory perception of pulsed microwaves appeared in 1956 as an advertisement of the Airborne Instruments Laboratory in Vo. 44 of the Proceedings of the IRE. The advertisement described observations made in 1947 on the hearing of sounds that occurred at the repetition rate of a radar while the listener stood close to a horn antenna.

From 2002 to March 2003: US Military May Use Directed Energy Weapons in Iraq, Press Reports During Run-up to War

 History Commons
As the United States and its allies ready themselves for war with Iraq, numerous press reports say that the US military may use newly-developed “directed energy” weapons during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Directed energy weapons (DEW) are based on laser technology.
The most advanced DEW and most likely to be actually deployed is a high-powered microwave (HPM) used to destroy enemy electronics by releasing an electro-magnectic pulse or EMP, akin to an electric surge caused by lightning. The danger of an electro-magnetic pulse was first realized in the 1960s during nuclear weapons research. A nuclear explosion can release enough radiation to “fry” electronic equipment.
The US and Soviet militaries are known to have devoted considerable efforts to harden their equipment against such damage. Since the 1980s, the United States has also researched the use of a high-powered microwave as an offensive weapon to disable enemy communications, electric, and computing equipment.
Such research has taken place primarily at Kirtland Air Force Base, in New Mexico, under the purview of the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Directed Energy Directorate. The Kirtland center has about 600 employees and a 120 million dollars annual budget. US companies such as TRW, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin are also involved in the field.

Partial Summary: 
Dr. Joseph C. Sharp and H. M. Grove developed receiver-less wireless voice transmission technologies for the Advanced Research Projects Agency at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, in 1973.

Weaponry that exploits the microwave auditory effect appears to have been classified "Secret NOFORN" in the USA at the latest 1998 until the declassification on 6 December 2006.

Joseph Sharp
Joseph Sharp received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in psychology/neuroanatomy from the University of Utah. In 1961, he began his career as a research psychologist at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research where, in 1970, he was appointed Deputy Director of Neuropsychiatry. He has also served as Chief of the Department of Experimental Psychology and Behavioral Radiology at Walter Reed, and in 1969 and 1970, was Deputy Commissioner of Public Health for the State of New York. He came to ARC in 1974, and the last five of those years, served as Director of Space Research at Ames. Currently he is with the College of Science at the University of Utah, Cedar City, Utah.
     In 1974, soon after he joined ARC, he attended a U.S./U.S.S.R. Joint Working Group meeting in Tashkent, U.S.S.R., with the Director of Life Sciences at NASA Headquarters, David Winter. "That was when the Russians, unannounced, dropped the offer on us to fly U.S. experiments on the Cosmos series," he recalled. "There had been zero preparation for that back in the States. Dave didn't know whether he had the authority to accept the offer, whether he had the budget, and what the scope was. I can remember walking for hours in the garden near the meeting place, discussing the offer. We finally talked ourselves into it, and Dave accepted. I was responsible for putting people and experiments together back at Ames. The time to launch was very short. We didn't even know what quality to build our equipment to." Finally, it was decided that Apollo-Soyuz quality standards would be used.
     "Getting that first series of experiments on Cosmos was really tough stuff," Sharp said. Some of the experiments had to be simplified, to have them ready in time for flight. "But that first series started a process that continues to this day. The vitality of the program is shown by the fact that it has survived for so long, even during the Reagan era. All the joint Nixon-Breszhnev programs were killed during that period, except for the Cosmos flight program. The agreement was signed before Reagan took office, and he honored it. So we carried on through that time, with reasonably good communications. At that time experiment complexity was increasing, so there was more and more dialogue going on between the two countries. Of course, everything had to be blessed by the National Security Council." The intelligence agencies also monitored the Cosmos activities, though indirectly. "We didn't do some of the things we wanted to do," Sharp said, "because of technology transfer concerns."

     Cosmos has evolved over the years. "Things have gotten more bureaucratized," Sharp explained. "But the Program has also become more productive. Experiments are more complex now. There are more collaborations between scientists. I think more Soviet scientists have been brought into their space program because of this than would have otherwise. And in our country, there are now many scientists who have collaborated with the Soviets."

     The Cosmos program brought NASA into direct contact with French and other European life scientists. This contact led to several collaborative projects. The early Cosmos flights served as a catalyst to bringing Ames into the modern era of flight programs. "When I arrived at Ames, there was no real life sciences flight program although good science was being done," Sharp says. "The U.S. biosatellite program had withered by the mid '70s. Cosmos really allowed us to organize to do the Shuttle flights."

     Sharp attributes much of the Cosmos program's success to Oleg Gazenko, the now retired Director of the Institute of Biomedical Problems in Moscow. "He kept it all together," Sharp says. Although he now acts in an advisory role, Gazenko's influence on the Soviet space program is still strong.

Biological Effects of Microwaves: Thermal and Nonthermal Mechanisms

"Microwave hearing may be useful to provide a disruptive condition to a person not aware of the technology. Not only might it be disruptive to the sense of hearing, it could be psychologically devastating if one suddenly heard "voices within one's head".

Narcissists, Group Behavior, and Terrorism ~ by author Sam Vaknin PhD
Having lived in 12 countries in 3 continents now, I firmly believe in "mass psychopathology", or ethno-psychology.  The members of a group, if sufficiently cohesive, tend to react similarly to circumstances. By "cohesive" I mean, if they share the same mental world, possibly the same history, the same language or dialect, the same hopes, folklore, fears, and aspirations "agenda", the same enemies and so on.

Thus, if recurrently traumatized or abused by external or internal forces, a group of people may develop the mass equivalent of pathological narcissism as a defence or compensatory mechanism. By "abuse" and "trauma" I mean any event, or series of events, or circumstances, which threaten the self identity, self image, sense of self worth, and self esteem of the collective consistently and constantly - though often arbitrarily and unpredictably.

Human collectives go through formation, individuation, separation - all the phases in individual psychological development.

A disturbance in the natural and unhindered progression of these phases is likely to result in psychopathology of all the members of the collective. Being subjugated to another nation, being exiled, enduring genocide, being destitute, being defeated in warfare - are all traumatic experiences with far reaching consequences.

Frey Effect

Microwave Hearing

July 18, 2008 As part of the U.S. Navy's investigation into futuristic nonlethal weaponry, the Sierra Nevada Corporation is building a microwave energy pulse gun that can produce a painful screaming sound inside a person's head from a long distance away. The inescapable sound, which is inaudible to untargeted bystanders, can be set to irritate, nauseate or even incapacitate people and animals that lie within range. Future applications may include crowd control, military use and even shopping mall security, provided it proves safe from permanent side effects. The science behind it also has the potential to give hearing to certain deaf people, or even projecting voices into peoples' heads.

The Sierra Nevada corporation has signed a contract with the U.S. Navy to follow up on successful recent testing of a non-lethal crowd control weapon that uses microwaves to project high-intensity sounds in the heads of targets, according to New Scientist magazine.

The MEDUSA (Mob Excess Deterrent Using Silent Audio) system makes use of the well-established Microwave Auditory Effect, in which microwave stimulation causes parts of the ear around the cochlea to expand thermally, which is interpreted as sound by the brain. The effect is a sound that appears to originate in the target's head, and can't be heard by anyone not directly in the beam's path.

This is not to be confused with Raytheon's Active Denial System, another crowd control weapon in development which uses a similar directed energy beam to cause unbearable but non-damaging heat pain in the top few layers of a target's skin.

Because MEDUSA's sound doesn't vibrate the eardrum itself, and thus the eardrum is not exposed to the damage potential that loud acoustic noise produces, traditional noise level limits don't have to apply with the MEDUSA system. So it's possible to dial in any level of sonic deterrent from mildly annoying up to physically and mentally incapacitating levels that the target has no way of blocking out of their head.

The MEDUSA system has the ability to be aimed at specific targets, multiple targets or even cover large areas with a broad beam, which will make it an effective security deterrent for the perimeters of protected areas. The same technology, on a smaller scale, could be used as an invisible sonic scarecrow to keep certain areas free from birds, as birds appear to respond to very low levels of microwave audio.

There are certain side effects - in 1961 testing of the first Microwave Auditory Effect system, Allen H. Frey noted dizziness, headaches and pins and needles in his subjects - and little is known about what further effects might occur when power levels are turned up to an incapacitating level. The potential for serious neural damage can't be ignored when you're effectively microwaving the inside of somebody's head - and if it does turn out to be lethal, the research may continue down that path and the technology may end up being used as a microwave death ray.

Beyond being used to generate an annoying high-pitched scream, the Microwave Auditory Effect has shown itself to hold interesting peacetime possibilities if it can be proven safe. By modulating the projected frequency, Sharp and Grove showed in 1975 that it's possible to "plant" voices, music and other sounds directly into the head.

Because the eardrum is not involved in the transmission of this sound, there have been hopes that patients with outer ear problems might be able to listen to music or voices through microwave transmission. On a more sinister note, it's easy to see how one might abuse the ability to direct "voices" straight into a person's head, as would appear to be feasible using the device described in this 2002 patent.

Still, the MEDUSA system is expected to be testable within one year and a mobile deployment unit built within another 18 months. And if it can be proven not to be harmful, it could be deployed within a few years in war zones, protest situations and shopping malls.
