A microchip is an integrated circuit. What do you call a microchip integrated into the circuit of our brains? The answer is Dr. Theodore Berger’s research. It is not science fiction but complex science that is working to replicate the electrical and chemical codes that neurons send out when retrieving memories. Beginning with successful tests in rats and monkeys, Berger has now begun human testing in the last year. What will this research lead to in ten years and what does this mean for the future of consciousness and identity? Learn how biotechnology can expand the brain’s ability to expand.
