DARPA Wants to Zap Your Brain to Boost Your Memory

We may go to sleep at night, but our brains don’t. Instead, they spend those quiet hours tidying up, and one of their chores is to lug memories into long-term storage boxes. Now, a group of scientists may have found a way to give that memory-storing process a boost, by delivering precisely timed electric zapsContinue reading “DARPA Wants to Zap Your Brain to Boost Your Memory”

DARPA program aims to develop an implantable neural interface capable of connecting with one million neurons

A new DARPA program aims to develop an implantable neural interface able to provide unprecedented signal resolution and data-transfer bandwidth between the human brain and the digital world. The interface would serve as a translator, converting between the electrochemical language used by neurons in the brain and the ones and zeros that constitute the languageContinue reading “DARPA program aims to develop an implantable neural interface capable of connecting with one million neurons”
