The Neurocritic has recently blogged about The Neuroscience of the Future:
Neural prosthetics, brain-computer interfaces (BCI), “closed-loop” deep brain stimulation (DBS) devices, and a world without human brain disorders. The first three of these are already here... is the last one possible?
A brain-computer interface controls her robotic arm. As easily as not thinking, she uses it to drink another shot of tequila.
Analyzing data from an EEG experiment on reaction times and impulse control disorders, the neuroscientist finds a link to Twitter usage.
Read the rest at Science Creative Quarterly.
And read more about the neurotech of the present, including DARPA's SUBNETS program, the Brain Radio, and other new DBS devices.
