PTSD Military Spending $12 Million on Brain Chips?

If you want to know why the military has not decreased suicides or really addressed PTSD, here's a great clue for you. They still don't understand it. Now of all things, they want to use a brain chip to prevent PTSD believing if they can change how folks remember things, everything will be hunky-dory.

Does anyone have a brain chip for the deciders since they are lacking a connection to reality?

Chips will come in the form of wireless neuroprosthetic brain implants
Scientists are working on understanding how brains encode memories
They want to create computer models that mimic a functioning brain
Will lead to chips that trigger brain activity if neurons are damaged
The US Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (Darpa) is working on chip implants to restore memory functions and heal traumatic brain injuries. The agency is getting closer to perfecting wireless 'neuroprosthetic' brain implants that will help with trauma and improve memory
About 2.7 million Americans served in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and at least 20 per cent of them have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The US Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (Darpa) says it can reduce this number by treating war veterans using chip implants.

Researchers at the organisation say wireless 'neuroprosthetic' brain implants will also help restore memory functions and heal traumatic brain injuries.
To create the chips, researchers say figuring out the puzzle of how the brain encodes memories is the first step. Once the pieces are put in order, scientists will be able to create computer models that mimic a functioning brain
Darpa, with the assistance of $12 million, is digging deep into the brain's soft tissue to record, predict and possibly treat anxiety, depression and other ailments of the mood and mind.
