So, I have probably mentioned this before in another blog, but the first results are out! If you are a bit of a science nerd, you will know that there was a lot of publicity about projects which aim to reveal how our brains work. Well here looks like what is the start of it. The results of a multi-million dollar brain mapping project are out!!!

The idea that we could eventually download somebody else’s experience and memory onto our own brain is something that we would expect to see in science fiction rather than science reality. Though before you start getting excited with the prospect of downloading Ron Jeremy’s (lets say interesting activities) experiences, there are a number of challenges which we need to tackle such as being able to capture someones experience and memories in a digital format.
