The Neurotechnology Wave

Email This Entry

Posted by Zack Lynch

The nascent neurotechnology wave (2010-2060) is being accelerated by the development of biochips and brain imaging technologies that make neurological analysis inexpensive and pervasive. Biochips that can perform the basic bio-analysis functions (genomic, proteomic, biosimulation, and microfluidics) at a low cost will transform biological analysis and production in a very similar fashion as the microprocessor did for data. Nano-imaging techniques will also play a vital role in making the analysis of neuro-molecular level events possible. When data from advanced biochips and brain imaging are combined they will accelerate the development of neurotechnology, the set of tools that can influence the human central nervous system, especially the brain. Neurotechnology will be used for therapeutic ends and to enhance human emotional, cognitive and sensory system performance.

Hi my name is Warren.
I am currently writting a book on Tarot and Qabalah and I have applied neuro related topic on brain wave regulation.

Perhaps you my be able to applie the ideas to a whole lifesysle type management of brain waves.

Science has found the marker points that of most interest.
Please contact me if you are interested in an association.
Verification from an establish group would help sales of the book and tarot software.
These card alter states of consiousness which I define In terms of brain wave frequenices.
The correlations for me seem quit impressive.
Any Info, correspondances with you and you group would be most helpful.
