A man in Russia performed his own brain surgery with a drill machine at home without any help.

A man in Russia performed his own brain surgery with a drill machine at home without any help. After this a chip was implanted in it. In an attempt to control his dreams, he stayed in the mouth of death for 10 hours.

Michael Raduga, who performed his surgery, said he had no experience with neurosurgery. During this he had lost a lot of blood. It was time to die. Hours later he had an electrode (a chip) implanted in his brain. He feels that with this he will one day be fully able to control his dreams. Michael said, I have no qualification related to neurosurgery. I then drilled a hole in the head with a drill I got from a hardware store and implanted the chip by holding some of the skin with a paper clip. Michael said, initially I was scared, almost fainted. A lot of blood had been shed.

Happy to have surgery: Michael

Michael said that I am very happy to do such a dangerous procedure and test new methods. This method may one day prove very useful. This may allow people to enter their dreams. Michael had the chip removed 5 weeks after surgery, as it may have put him at risk of long-lasting damage. Alex Green, a consultant neurosurgeon at Oxford University, said: "It should not be tried at home at all because it is dangerous."
