Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) can enable information to be read out of the brain into computers to control prosthetic limbs, and information can be delivered into the brain through electrodes to generate sensations, emotions, or restore rudimentary vision to the blind.  (...) What scientists surmise is that some artificial sensation is evoked in the brain by the stimulation, and that it is the brain’s remarkable learning capability and adaptability to begin to recognize that artificial event and then use it in a practical way – for example, to move a robotic arm or interpret flashes of light evoked by stimulating the visual cortex of a blind person. (...) In spite of the fear and sensational press coverage of this supposed neuroweapon, it is important to balance this potential – but presently unsubstantiated – threat with the real threats that we now face.

PRACTICES OF SO-CALLED CONVERSION THERAPY : REPORT OF THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT ON PROTECTION AGAINST VIOLENCE AND DISCRIMINATION BASED ON SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTITY
Practices of “conversion therapy” are however the contrary, relying on the medically false pathologization of sexual orientation and gender identity, manifested through interventions that inflict severe pain and suffering and result in psychological and physical damage. (...) Aversion is another frequent practice, through which a person is subjected to a negative, painful or otherwise distressing sensation while being exposed to a certain stimulus, under the premise that the stimulus will become associated with the negative sensation. (...) All evidence provided to the Independent Expert depicting, among other harmful acts, beatings, rape, forced nudity, force-feeding or food deprivation, isolation and confinement, forced medication, verbal abuse, humiliation and electrocution, suggests that the methods and means commonly utilized to implement practices of “conversion therapy” are conducive to psychological and physical pain and suffering. 102 In that regard, the Independent Forensic Expert Group has concluded that: All practices attempting conversion are inherently humiliating, demeaning and discriminatory.

STIGMATIZATION AS DEHUMANIZATION : WRONGFUL STEREOTYPING AND STRUCTURAL VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN AFFECTED BY LEPROSY : REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE ELIMINATION OF DISCRIMINATION AGAINST PERSONS AFFECTED BY LEPROSY AND THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS
Treatment dropout rates in children range from 10 to 20 per cent in some programmes, the main cause being the child’s refusal to cooperate in swallowing tablets and the long duration of the treatment, which can be physically challenging and painful. Child-friendly treatment options like flavoured syrups would provide greater quality to the care of children with leprosy and would also help in securing adherence to the treatment. (...) When asked if these traditional beliefs have a more adverse impact on women affected by leprosy than on men affected by leprosy, 45.5 per cent of the responses confirmed that this is the case, citing the following practices: driving out from the household without financial resources to ensure survival (which is at the root of a considerable number of affected women begging and/or selling sex); abuse within the household as a result of women experiencing difficulties in performing the role expected of them (due to pain and other physical impairments caused by leprosy); and lack of resources to fight against discrimination (including lack of access to justice). (...) The following practices were described: separation from children and not being allowed to feed them; verbal abuse from family and community members; beatings perpetrated by family members who regard women affected by leprosy as sinners and/or indolent due to the difficulties they face in fulfilling household activities when living with chronic pain and physical impairments; sexual abuse and violence perpetrated by the spouse and family members; abuse from medical workers; and suicide attempts. 60.

CONSIDERATION OF REPORTS SUBMITTED BY STATES PARTIES UNDER ARTICLE 12 (1) OF THE OPTIONAL PROTOCOL TO THE CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD ON THE SALE OF CHILDREN, CHILD PROSTITUTION AND CHILD PORNOGRAPHY : INITIAL REPORTS OF STATES PARTIES DUE IN 2006 : AUSTRIA
In addition, this applies to all realistic representations of genitals or the pubic area, insofar as they are distorted for no purpose other than to arouse sensation, and independent from any other expressions of life for the sexual stimulation of an observer, as well as to all visual representations, which as a result of a modification or not, under given circumstances convey the impression to be such a representation. 26. (...) Nevertheless, in order to prevent that children be required to describe, in presence of the accused/defendant, humiliating and painful treatment they have suffered, the Criminal Procedure Amendment Act (Strafprozessrechtsänderungsgesetz) adopted in 1993, (Federal Law Gazette. (...) This applies not only to bodily harm and the causing of physical pain, but to every other treatment that violates human dignity, even if such treatment is not perceived by the child as negative.

REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON TORTURE AND OTHER CRUEL, INHUMAN OR DEGRADING TREATMENT OR PUNISHMENT, JUAN E. MÉNDEZ
Health providers allegedly withhold care or perform treatments that intentionally or negligently inflict severe pain or suffering for no legitimate medical purpose. (...) Generally, denial of pain treatment involves acts of omission rather than commission,70 and results from neglect and poor Government policies, rather than from an intention to inflict suffering. However, not every case where a person suffers from severe pain but has no access to appropriate treatment will constitute cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment.
