|The Future of Medicine Through Bioengineering - Ayden Jacob|
Soldiers suffer from PTST , traumatic brain injury, and memory loss on a very frequent basis. In reaction to this unfortunate outcome of war incurred by our noble troops, DARPA is investigating the future of military warfare: Neuroimplants. The current trajectory of the project aims to design neuronal black boxes which can be incorporated into the brain of a soldier to record their brain signals and neuronal firings while on the battle field. Akin to a blackbox used to record flight crashes, scientists are aiming to build this device in a way that will record the lost memories of the soldiers on the battle field. Yet, much needs to be done in terms of developing a standard method of encoding how neurons speak with one another and what those 'conversations' actually mean.
