The Remarkable Human Brain Has Few Limits
Darin's notes: A study of cognitive linguistics in graduate school led me to a fascination with how our brain works, and it is surprising how much we have learned in just the last decade.
While few ideas are certain in neuroscience, our knowledge of how the brain work grows exponentially, tremendous advances made daily.
As a superhero in neuroscience Kurzweil looks to the past and to the future to glimpse where our brains are headed. His idea are controversial, but plausible.
Mines the past to see the growth of the neocortex in animals and the prefrontal cortex in humans - the areas responsible for our powerful ability to think, reason, and speculate.
Notes that the future promises a smooth integration between the human brain and technology embedded to maximize the synthesis of thought and the mass knowledge storage of technology. The combination of neural modules and nanotechnology promise a human brain superior to both neurons and bites.
