Polish term or phrase: podsłuch biologicznny
tłumaczę pismo od klientki, która podejrzewa, że padła ofiarą podsłuchu biologicznego.
Na stronach polskich jest trochę o tym, po angielsku nic nie mogę znaleźć
a "biological tapping" jakoś w ogóle się nie googluje.

Dziękuję z góry za pomoc

Explanation:
In a delusion where a person believes that electronic listening devices are implanted in their brain, for example, the implausibility of the belief is obvious to everyone else around, but is held with an unshakeable conviction by that person.

agree  Tomasz Poplawski: Frank, zgoda, ale znowu muszę zaprotestować przeciwko dodatkowi. Pewna pani (poza ewidentną schizofrenią, bardzo miła i inteligentna) opowiadała mi kiedyś, jak urządzenie podsłuchowe wszczepiono jej w nos... podczas operacji plastycznej. Nie tylko mózg!
