> In fact, making a brain isn’t as difficult as you might expect. With a few simple ingredients – and an unquenchable enthusiasm for drenching things in alcohol – you too could have a miniature brain in a matter of months.

> Finally, the developing brains are enveloped in a blanket of jelly. “It’s the opposite of normal jelly – it starts off as a liquid which you pour on and it jellifies as it warms up in the incubator,” she says.

> The man-made brains are already transforming our understanding of the brain, its disorders and what makes humans special.

> So what does the future hold? Several groups are working on improving the brains, introducing a blood supply so that they can grow larger

> For many scientists, the ultimate goal is for the brains to function like normal brains

Not sure if /n/ or /wc/

is this what the main stream is claiming as Vault 7 to beat the leak or what?

I thought there would be more discussion and interest in brain research a forum centered around people taking mind-altering medications.

Anyone want to speculate when we can start surgically implanting bits of specially grown designer brains into our brain and what effect it might have?

Would you upgrade your brain bit by bit?

Given this chan is nearly entirely centered around causing damage to your brain for short term pleasure I doubt it. Half the users here will probably go through with a self-lobotomy performed at home by 12 gauge as well.

We've all seen this stuff before and have speculated and researched about "upgrading our brains" to no end. This place is slow because there are not a lot of people here and those that are here can only have the same conversation so many times. When something new happens we will talk about it.

Homie, there's nothing stopping you from cracking open your cranium right now and wiring all kinds of technological gadgets into it, which would certainly have all kinds of effects! The problem is most of the knowledge we have about head-wiring are for repairing injuries, not enhancing capabilities, and generally you need a doctor willing to perform a procedure, which they won't do if it's elective and potentially life threatening (all brain surgery is.)

As for vat grown designer brains, that's just a short matter of time. They've cultured fully functional liver tissue at a small scale. Neuronal tissue is, I'm sure, being researched at several places right now, and once they make an initial batch it will just be a matter of scaling up (for reference, even making as much tissue as a meatball out of stem cells still costs like a quarter of a million bucks, so it will be some time until making six pounds of brain tissue becomes affordable.)

Not biologically.

Yeah but not directly and with cybernetics and CPUs capable of high speed. The brain is you, don't fuck with it too much or you'll lose your self.

You know this just made me realize something pretty horrifying. Even in the singularity, people will like wrestling. So I guess 'battle bots' will become a global pastime? People will probably make NASCAR with hover-cars, too. My point is that no matter how much awesome technology you have, someone will find a way to use it that's 100% cringe-worthy.
