A neuroscientist proposes growing cyborg brains from stem cells.
and a 2012 report in Science that concluded, “The mechanisms of perception, cognition, and action remain mysterious because they emerge from the real-time interactions of large sets of neurons in densely interconnected, widespread neural circuits,” and several others.
Stanford neuroscientist Dorman Aur:
“A hybrid system can be designed to include an evolving brain equipped with digital computers that maintain homeostasis and provide the right amount of nutrients and oxygen for the brain growth,” Aur writes in the paper. “Shaping the structure of the evolving brain will be progressively achieved by controlling spatial organization of various types of cells.”
