! Implant Chip Controls The Brain Allowing Thoughts, Memory And Behavior To Be Transferred. Rats For Now.
artificial memory system that allows thoughts, memories and learned behavior to be transferred from one brain to another
neural engineering” and “Biomimetic MicroElectronic Systems” have successfully created a chip that controls the brain and can be used as a storage device for long-term memories.
In studies the scientists have been able to record, download and transfer memories into other hosts with the same chip implanted.
computer programs are uploaded into people’s brains allowing them to instantly learn how to perform a wide variety of tasks.

Scientists successfully implant artificial memory system
neural implants linking our brains to machines have become a reality
Scientists have developed a way to turn memories on and off—literally with the flip of a switch.
Using an electronic system that duplicates the neural signals associated with memory, they managed to replicate the brain function in rats associated with long-term learned behavior, even when the rats had been drugged to forget.
Long-term memory capability returned to the pharmacologically blocked rats when the team activated the electronic device programmed to duplicate the memory-encoding function.
These integrated experimental modeling studies show for the first time that with sufficient information about the neural coding of memories, a neural prosthesis capable of real-time identification and manipulation of the encoding process can restore and even enhance cognitive mnemonic processes
Next steps, according to Berger and Deadwyler, will be attempts to duplicate the rat results in primates (monkeys), with the aim of eventually creating prostheses that might help the human
