"Getting Out of Reverse"
Developed by neurobiologist Ross Gelman, this process is used by Madeline to "adjust" Nikita's behavior at the conclusion of Season Three. It segregates parts of the brain using chemical stimuli in conjunction with other unspecified elements, and is reversible. The process was tested on Adrian after the latter failed in her attempt to destroy Section at the conclusion of Season Two. Michael uses a quarantine nexus chamber, cerebral inhibitors and an ultrasonic unit with sensory deprivation channel to free Nikita from the process in "Into the Looking Glass." The process has a potentially fatal side effect: It uses chemicals which cause a neurological virus. The virus causes the death of Adrian, and nearly causes Nikita's death in "In Through The Out Door." The process requires maintenance -- drugs, ocular therapy, etc. If maintenance is stopped, temporary recovery may occur, followed by a relapse which includes aphasia, headaches and a rapid decline.
