The human brain is truly a wonder, and nature has honed it to be an incredibly efficient tool for processing information and hanging on to things we might need at a later date… but it could be even better. Scientists have now done what at one time was thought to be impossible by using a brain implant to actually augment human memory and prove that it works to improve information retention by a measurable degree.

Presenting the research at the Society for Neuroscience meeting this past weekend, Dong Song of the University of Southern California revealed his team’s successful efforts to use manmade hardware to improve brain function. With 20 volunteers embracing the new technology and allowing the scientists to play around with their brain function, the study marks a huge leap in human augmentation and could be a sign of what’s to come.
