[SD] Researchers Grow a Brain In a Dish. - Page 5

post #41 of 97
I have mixed feelings on this. There are the moral implications when they move to human brains, which may or may not be cognizant of what is going on. On the flip side, the benefit of having living brains to study and test on could potentially lead to huge advances in medicine. Particularly Alzheimer's and other degenerative diseases which we do not fully comprehend yet.

This research could also open the doorway to understanding the bio-electrical nature of the human brain, and push us into the direction of science fiction with instant learning such as that from The Matrix series. Internet connectivity linked to the human brain? What about increasing your memory capability by buying a new Corsair memory pack and plugging it into your noggin' like from Johnny Mnemonic? The possibilities are endless.

Interesting stuff, but I hope they do tread these new waters with care.

Got to wonder where science will draw the line,surely there are better things to do.This is outrageous,the brain will have a mind an a memory.You got to ask yourself 'what the f**k they gonna do with this',could be really damn scary.I'm not religious and all for science but this is just wrong.I for stem cell research to help people,but this probably wont help anyone,apart from some shady government organization/department.Science should focus on things that will benefit society.

Memories != consciousness

Just because there is memory of an event, doesn't mean there is conscious thought or cognizance. Think of the worker bee. It is a drone - no consciousness or self awareness. It does the same routine day in and day out without flinching. It has memories - like where to go gather, where the hive is, etc - but is far from a conscious being with thought and emotion.

Uh...it's own. Memories don't have to be human or implanted if that's what you're getting at. Memory can even be chalked up to "remembering" how something that is prodding it (like an instrument poking it in the petri dish to get a physical reaction, like moving away,) feels like.

Part of the appeal of digital computers vs biological creatures like us is that we have the capacity to be wrong AND we're way slower. Why would you want a computer that has the potential to get calculations wrong?

Complete with memories is the part that i'm most interested in.

Maybe in the not-so-distant future we'll be able to back ourselves up onto file.
