A synaptic stimulator was a small device capable of directly accessing an individual's nervous system. The Akritirian culture of the Delta Quadrant utilized synaptic stimulators as a form of control over their prison population. Known as "the clamp," it operated by stimulating the production of acetylcholine in the victim's hypothalamus, essentially helping to stimulate one's aggressive tendencies. This ensured that prisoners constantly fought among themselves, instead of organizing and potentially posing a threat to order.
