OK, so you put in the brain implant, switch it in and out of circuit without telling the subject which is which, and ask them how they feel. They can't tell any difference and you can't tell any difference in behaviour. To make the experiment better there would be two researchers, one doing the switching and another analysing the subject's behaviour. With this double blind procedure the implant is pronounced successful.
