The Future! Get Ready

Advice, Lifestyle, Tech March 29, 2011

I’m not ready yet.  Dr. Miguel Nicolelis is conducting research where he studies future anticipated motor functions in primate brains.  As an action potential, electric impulse, moves along a brain cell it causes a change in a cell.  That change is what causes action, whatever that action may be.  Dr. Nicolelis’ study is about anticipating these action potentials, basically thinking about making a move.  The primates brains are connected to computers so as they think about making a move or playing a game the move is made and the game is played on the computer screen.  Future implications, creating full body “armor” for paralyzed people allowing their thoughts to help them ambulate. This guy is definitely the future.  Everyone…it’s stylish to read, so get studying…be the change.
