What do you think of this science? Just read the article last night and was a bit overwhelmed. It is a lot of information and i don’t claim to understand all of the ideas or science presented in the article. Attempting to learn more about Synthetic Telepathy led me to the article. Please go to wikipedia and search for Brain-Computer Interface and read. Let me know what you think. Please read the entire article. Heres the link enter link description here
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A brain–computer interface (BCI), sometimes called a mind-machine interface (MMI), direct neural interface (DNI), or brain–machine interface (BMI), is a direct communication pathway between the brain and an external device. BCIs are often directed at assisting, augmenting, or repairing human cognitive or sensory-motor functions.
Research on BCIs began in the 1970s at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) under a grant from the National Science Foundation, followed by a contract from DARPA. The papers published after this research also mark the first appearance of the expression brain–computer interface in scientific literature.
The field of BCI research and development has since focused primarily on neuroprosthetics applications that aim at restoring damaged hearing, sight and movement. Thanks to the remarkable cortical plasticity of the brain, signals from implanted prostheses can, after adaptation, be handled by the brain like natural sensor or effector channels. Following years of animal experimentation, the first neuroprosthetic devices implanted in humans appeared in the mid-1990s.
