This Is Your Brain. This Is Your Brain On A Microchip.

I’ve been waiting for my cranial hardware implants ever since I read Neuromancer. And slowly, the scienctists are inching their way toward being able to furnish me with them – they are now growing cultures of mammalian brain tissue on silicon chips, so that the two can interface. At the moment the technology is being used to study the hippocampus and its functions, but I’m sure they’ll get busy with the datajacks soon.
