A hardware update for the brain

Notice: computers are not just for Facebook and email anymore.

They are being used to not only understand the way the brain works but also to create apps that work directly to improve the functioning of the nervous system.

Specifically, neurotechnology is being used to help with:

  • seizures in epileptics
  • tremors from Parkinson’s Disease
  • and memory loss from Alzheimers

But it might also be used to enable:

  • brains to learn faster or remember longer.
    • THINK: Keanu Reeves learning kung fu in The Matrix
  • brains to think differently
    • THINK: what we buy, the rules we follow, the politicians we believe in…

Freaked out or inspired? You decide.
