Pinch harmonics. Touch the string with your right thumb while picking. You need good pickups/amp though to get them to squeal properly.
I'm currently working on a system to generate MIDI from the motion of a guitar. More info coming soon.

They're just pinch harmonics, which generally sound cooler on the thicker strings (although it's slightly harder to pull them off on thick strings). Also, note that he's palm muting at the same time that he's playing those pinch harmonics. You might wanna use a thicker pick than usual and experiment with the different places where you can pull off a pinched harmonic. This guy seems to be using the most common one, so to speak: between the humbuckers

If you're not that familiar with pinch harmonics at all you might wanna check out the whole video...

What fret doesn't matter so much - what matters is where you pick.
Actually called Mark!
