The neural neutralizer was a "device invented by Dr. Simon Van Gelder in 2266 [at the Federation penal colony on Tantalus V] to aid rehabilitation of criminals. The neutralizer was intended to selectively remove thoughts relating to criminal acts, but was later found to have potentially lethal effects." (STE). On full power with prolonged exposure, the neutralizer causes neural synapse damage and can completely empty a mind causing the victim to literally die of loneliness. (TOS "Dagger of the Mind").
