Prosthetic Brain

The New Scientist has an article talking about a prosthetic hypocampus. Supposedly they're about to start "testing in California". Hey, new mind control devices for the People's Republic of California. No, not really. Mice are first, working up through the usual levels of testing to Alzheimer's patients.

However, this does make Logan Whitehurst somewhat of a visionary. Prosthetic Brain has been out for a couple years now. For more good/odd/silly Jr. Science, check out When Werewolves Collide, Waffle of Death and Happy Noodle vs. Sad Noodle (if you can find it) (WARNING: Happy Noodle is one of those that takes up residence in your head).

Good background noise for coding.
