Beyond Boundaries: The New Neuroscience of Connecting Brains with Machines and How It Will Change Our Lives
A pioneering neuroscientist shows how the long-sought merger of brains with machines is about to become a paradigm-shifting reality
Imagine living in a world where people use their computers, drive their cars, and communicate with one another simply by thinking. In this stunning and inspiring work, Duke University neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis shares his revolutionary in...more
The book offers specific and compelling evidence for not only controlling robotic systems remotely, but also for how our brain is naturally built to incorporate external apparatus and sense data directly into the body map and further into the sense of self, for brain connected robotics that restore the ab...more
"If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing." - Benjamin Franklin
Having finished "Beyond Boundaries" I can confidently state that Prof. Nicolelis, like Franklin before him, is one of the few people to do both.
The book is a whistle-stop tour of modern neuroscience offering an invaluable first-hand insight into the process of research and the reasoning and methods behind many of the classic and state-of-the-a...more
Obama's brain project just set out this year. Some people say this book is the reason for this marathon project. After monthly observation (read), I found this book do touch your brain to re-think about methods of studying human brain----1, are we on the right track of neural signal recording. 2, how psychophysics affects our daily lives.
The reader gets a first-person account of how some of the most amazing brain research is being done and by about half-way through the book, will understand the fundamental shift in thinking away from the static model of the mammalian brain.
If that sounds dry and boring- consider this: for a...more
