Subject: Chips Coming to a Brain Near You
Date: Tue, 9 Nov 2004 04:00:14 -0500

In this era of high-tech memory management, next in line to get that memory 
upgrade isn't your computer, it's you.

Professor Theodore W. Berger, director of the Center for Neural Engineering 
at the University of Southern California, is creating a silicon chip implant 
that mimics the hippocampus, an area of the brain known for creating 
memories. If successful, the artificial brain prosthesis could replace its 
biological counterpart, enabling people who suffer from memory disorders to 
regain the ability to store new memories.
