Transcript of Brain Implants...
Imagine being able to surf the internet
in your head
A chip in the head
Could those implants be used to control and manipulate us?
They can also be used to restore people's memories
Soon you will be able to !!
Did you know...
Right now, there are approximately 100,000 people around the world that have implants in their brains.
The US government plan to spend over $70 million, over 5 years, on brain implants.
Brain implants aren't just for going on the internet and having fun.
They can also provide medical help.
Systems-Based Neurotechnology for Emerging Therapies
Can tiny silicone chips be the future of medical help?
How it works...
"One could of course theoretically able to control brain functions and modify people’s personality. For example, make them more or less aggression prone or the learning ability by adding to chronic stimulation. It’s like with anything else, in that the knowledge is there, you can use it in many ways," says Göran Lundborg.
People could potentially use brain implants to control people in ways that would have a negative effect.
Thankfully this hasn't happened yet
Eduard Hitzig and Gustaw Fritsch showed that electrical simulation of the brains of dogs could produce movement.
Robert Bartholow showed the same to be true for humans
Robert G.Heath used brain implants to affect the mood of aggressive mental patients.
Jose Delgado invented the stimociever to modify basic behaviours.
The CIA funded research into mind control techniques, such as: MKULTRA
The first brain implants were surgically inserted
There is still a lot of new research being carried out, and more people are beginning to have brain implants.
What is a disruptive technology?
Are brain implants disruptive technologies?
Brain implants are disruptive technologies because there's never been anything like them before and they could change the future of medical history.
A disruptive technology is a new technology that unexpectedly displaces an established technology.
