cf /duh - lost brain

Artificial Intelligence

Holograms projected onto brain cells could help replace lost senses and EDIT our memories

  • This technology could be the first step to developing a virtual brain implant

  • A 'holographic brain modulator' uses light to change brain function

  • Researchers say the laser holography kit could eventually fit in a backpack

  • The hologram fools the brain into thinking it has felt, seen or sensed something

The aim of the device is to read neural activity constantly and decide, based on that activity, which sets of neurons to activate in order to replace lost sensations. Pictured is a sample hologram with 50 randomly distributed neuron targets
