In brief: No.

Ants do not enter the brain.
However, fire ants inject an alkaloid venom called solenopsin - into the skin or any membranes that they come in contact with. This can be quite painful.

In brief: Not in the U.S.

The typical ants in the U.
S. Cannot get into the brain of a normal, healthy person. The ants have to reason to try to do that.
