Indeed, Debera, this is the goal of targeted drug therapies--to treat only the areas that need to be treated so other areas are not affected. I think it's a bit of a Holy Grail of this type of treatment. Scientists are getting close.
Yes, Debera, I think that's exactly the point. The artificial brain will give doctors and scientists insight into how the brain works, not necessarily be something that will be used to replace a real brain in a human. That seems a bit too scifi and creepy! But you never know--with the way medicine is progressing, perhaps that will someday happen as well. I don't think I want to be around to see it, though.
Developing an artificial brain will be a great acheivement for scientist. Because it is not necessary that they will be successfull in developing virtual brain they in dong so tthey will come across differen t functions and neurons of the brain which will help increase there understanding .
Thanks Elizebeth for such an interesting post , Brain to brain interface is a very good thing. It can help in many ways like controllig thr brains of the other not only this but also in controlling the actions of others as well. This technology can be very usefull in crime department to control the crime of the suspected people as well This is what i beleive and it is just a assumption maybe i am wrong
Elizabath personally I do not like the idea of an others mind reading, Cause that I feels it will lead to lose the privacy and will lead unexpected problems. I do like to know the ideas of others also.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
