The World’s First Memory Expansion for Brain

A group of scientists created a prosthetic chip that serves as the first memory expansion for the brain.

After conducting a study regarding the chemical interactions that gave rats a short-term learning and memorization, Dr. Theodore Berger from University of South California’s Viterbi School of Engineering, invented a prosthetic chip with some help from a group of scientists.

Currently, the group is working for another experiment, and that is to reproduce the same results in other animals — such as monkeys.
