I Know Kung Fu

Post by Mikes » Thu Jun 23, 2011 12:53 am

Scientists have created a chip that allows rats to instantly know things. It’s amazing. After studying the chemical interactions that allow short-term learning and memorisation in rats, a group of scientists lead by Dr Theodore Berger – from the University of South California’s Viterbi School of Engineering – have built a prosthetic chip that uses electrodes to enhance and expand their memory abilities. The chip is capable of storing neural signals, basically functioning as an electronic memory, allowing rats to learn more and keep it in the devices.

It also shows hope for repairing damage created by dementia. But more importantly I've always wanted to speak Esperanto.

But if all you need for knowledge acquisition is a chip in the noggin,' what will 18-22 year olds use as their reason for habitual binge drinking?

Don't worry about that, Stalin. My guess is that the major alcohol distributors and "Big Tobacco" will bribe... erm, I mean contribute to...these scientists coming up with lung and liver FLASH RAM modules next.
