brain_in_a_jar.jpgMy brother just wrote me from Santa Cruz about a bit of futuretech:

Did you hear about the "Living Brain in a Jar"? I think this stuff is really cool!! This guy is culturing rat neurons on an electrode array which he has hooked up to a computer, essentially making a living neural network. He even got the brain to control a flight simulator! Cyborgism around the corner?
