The brain is of profound importance. It is the place that houses our sense of self, our mind. It contains all of who and what we are. As technologies advance, Brain-Machine interfaces will become more and more sophisticated, and our understanding of the brain's functions will become ever-greater. This resource is a search engine specifically geared to finding all resources on the site that deal with developments / prosthetics for different brain regions.
There has been a great deal of effort, in recent years towards the simulation of a fully working brain. The drive to understand the workings of the human brain has never been greater, with actual neuroprosthetic devices in existence to drive research. We are a long, long way from recreating a human brain with it's billions of neurons and trillions of connections, however that does not mean we are incapable of building a brain.

The Allen Brain Atlas, a project like never before: Literally a mapping of the human brain, an attempt to make connections between anatomical, genetic, and behavioral observations.
On the sixth of June 2005, the most ambitious project to date for brain research was launched. Its mission: to recreate a human brain in simulation, neuron for neuron, connection for connection. Then, turn it on, and give it stimulai, to see what happens.
Powering a neuroprosthetic is a tricky issue. As most of these devices are implanted either on the surface of the brain, or deep inside its folds, it is not a trivial matter to pop it out and change the battery. But, what if the same sugar that feeds the brain, could also feed the prosthetic?

Brain Navigator is a type of single user virtual environment. Designed as an aide to research more than anything else, it understandably has a wide plethora of uses outside the academic fields.
Neuroprosthetics, brain emulation and mind uploading are together perhaps the most extreme end of the trend towards virtual reality. All three are BMI, or Brain-Machine Interface. BMI is an old field, stretching back over six decades, concerned with direct-connecting the human brain to machines, in order to improve the function of both.
