Transhumanism: Increasing Human Thought Capabilities VI

Providing more resilience to the thinking activity (including more focus) Thinking activity, as any other brain process, is the result of the activation/deactivation of millions, billions neurones and synapses. In turns, these activation/deactivation is influenced by several chemical substances floating in the brain. Improving thinking activity therefore can be pursued …

Transhumanism: Increasing Human Thought Capabilities II

The increase of thinking capabilities can be pursued by: “engineering” a better “brain” (pretty though, since we do not know yet how it works nor how the genome is shaping it …) Improving processing capabilities through focused stimulation better exploiting its capabilities, including establishing better connection with it, feeding more pertinent …

Magnetoencephalography goes on the move

In the quest to unravel the working of the brain scientists are using several kind of “sensors” to see how the brain works. Magnetoencephalography, an approach developed in the last century (1968), allows medical doctors and researchers to watch the brain electrical activity by sensing the magnetic field generated by …

Nano particles as sensor in the brain

Many feel that the next decade will be the one of the brain, reaching a tipping point where we will eventually understand how the brain works. A number of mega-projects are active each one following a slightly different approach. All of them require more raw data on what it is …
