The World’s First Memory Expansion for Brain

Written on June 21, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

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.

By using electrodes, this prosthetic chip enhances and expands the brain memory abilities of rats. The chip also has the capability to store neural signals and do work as an electronic memory device, thus, allowing animals (rats) to learn new knowledge and keep it in the devices.

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

Nano-poplar: The Computer Memory Fabrication of the Future

We will no longer need rare earth elements to make powerful computers in the future. We can use proteins from poplar trees to expand silicon chip's computer memory.

Poplar trees will be the next element in creating powerful computers in the future. Israeli Engineers have figured out a way to use protein molecules from poplars in improving computer memory. According to the researchers from Hebrew University of Jerusalem, silica nanoparticles are combined with poplar proteins. This approach marks a new way in minimizing memory elements while increasing its capacity.

The technology involves a genetically engineered poplar proteins, hybridized with the silica nanoparticles. This nanoparticles is attached to the inner pore of the protein. Then, the poplar pores are arranged in array of molecular memory elements. Professor Danny Porath, the leader of the research team at the Institute of Chemistry at Hebrew University, found that the elements can carry stable computing activity. The research team hopes that this can be an alternative to the current computer memory fabrication.
