DailyDirt: Building Better Brains

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Our brains are pretty important organs. Obviously, so are organs like skin and kidneys, but the human brain is what sets people apart from other animals. We still don't know that much about how our brains work, but that's not stopping some fascinating research that could extend our brains' capabilities with technology. Some of this research could help us do more with the brains we have or help keep our brains in tip-top shape as we age. Here are just a few brain projects off the top of my head. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.
