Radio controlled bulls and parasites that can literally blow minds it must be Amazing Examples of Mind over Matter.
Theories of brainwashing and of mind control were originally developed to explain how totalitarian regimes appeared to systematically indoctrinate prisoners of war through propaganda and torture techniques. These theories were later expanded and modified by psychologists including Margaret Singer and Philip Zimbardo to explain a wider range of phenomena, especially conversions to new religious movements (NRMs). The suggestion that NRMs use mind control techniques has resulted in scientific and legal debate; with Eileen Barker, James Richardson, and other scholars, as well as legal experts, rejecting at least the popular understanding of the concept.
In 1964 Professor Jose Rodrigues Delgada planted a transmitter in a bull´s brain. Manipulating parts of its brain, he could stop the bull from charging using a remote control.
Ants ingest fly eggs and the resulting larvae feed on their brain and control their movement. Eventually the baby flies will decapitate their host and exit through the head.
A parasite controls ants´ movements, forcing them to climb blades of grass each night. Hoping the ant will be eaten by larger animals, surviving insects regain control each morning.
Hymendepimecis argyraphaga is a parasitic wasp that plants larvae on and drugs spiders. The chemical poison makes hosts spin cocoon-like webs before wasps kill them and move into the cocoon.
A parasite invades and takes over the brains of fish, forcing them to swim erratically near the surface. 30 times more likely to be seen and eaten by birds, the parasites then breed in the birds´ stomachs.
A Brazilian fungus infects ants and takes control of their brains. Dance it finds an ideal location for growth, it kills the insect and leaves the body.
Harvard University scientists used ultrasound tech to control rats´ tail with brain signals. During the 2013 experiment, rats´ tails twitched 1.5 seconds after scientists though about movement.
Spinohordodes Tellinii is a hairworm parasite that forces itsToxoplasma Gondii host to jump in water and commit suicide. It grows inside an insect to fill the body, before jumping in water to emerge unharmed to breed.
Toxoplasma Gondii is a parasite which draws prey towards its predator. Infected mice which should fear cats become attracted to the smell of cats´´ urine.

Washington University researcher Rajesh Rap used brain signals to control a colleague´s hand. In 2013 he imagined playing a computer game and Andrea Stocco´s finger moved involuntarily in response.
