Annual American SXSW conference of science and technology has always been considered cutting-edge technology platform for the display, in this year's SXSW conference, a professor at the university of southern California Theodore Berger announced: experiments on monkeys, mice, through artificial hippocampus completed the short-term memory to long-term memory storage \"almost perfect\" transformation, this technology can be completed on the backup and the memory of the human brain, and finally simulation of implanted into the machine.

Artificial hippocampus? The human brain memory backup? Copy and into the fuselage? Human consciousness forever? That sounds nice?

First of all, we first to understand, how is the person's memory?


Delta is the hippocampus cortex in the fold area within a ring structure


Delta because of the shape and the hippocampus are similar, so called the hippocampus

When it comes to memory, you have to mention the hippocampus. The short-term memory in our daily life are stored in the hippocampus, if a fragment of memory, such as a phone number or a person in a short period of time is repeated, the hippocampus can transfer them into the cerebral cortex, become permanent memory.

So, the hippocampus is responsible for in the human brain to convert short-term memory to long-term storage of parts. In addition, the hippocampus also have \"search\" function. Scientists point out, this part of the brain responsible for helping build information filing system, and in need of, quick to useful information retrieval.

Hungary, a neuroscientist at the George zack in 2006 published the book \"the rhythm of the brain\", said: \"if the cerebral cortex, imagine for a huge library, then the hippocampus is one of the librarian\". Once the hippocampus is damaged or diseased, can make the person suffering from alzheimer's disease, alzheimer's disease), epilepsy, Parkinson's, and other mental disorders and other diseases.

Then we have to explain, Berger, a professor at is how to realize the human brain memory backup and copy!

Berger, a professor at the team first to training of a chip implanted monkey, let it to select the correct button within 30 seconds, and then copies the chip to another monkey brain, the monkeys do the same after the training to complete.

Professor Berger says the replication in monkeys can close to perfect, the accuracy of the human body for the currently 80% (now the test has been successful in eight epilepsy patients), he expects the future has the potential to improve to the extremely high accuracy. What is certain is that the brain has been able to accept as a substitute or memory module chip.



\"The future is expected to remain human consciousness\" the road ahead is difficult.

Technical difficulty to be reckoned with, more than a century of exploration of the brain is just touching the surface of the great scientific challenges. Ethical concerns are self-evident, existing groups worry that this idea will produce \"mind-reading\", \"the brain is control\" and so on.

The human mind works


Scientific research on the brain, which is the biggest challenge to human beings, has been at the forefront of natural science. The brain is the body's command, how we perceive the world, how to control movement, and even our memory, consciousness, thoughts and how intelligence is produced, these all belong to the category of brain science research.

Brain research has become the hot topics in the study of contemporary science, more and more governments, organizations and scientists also calls for strengthening the study of the brain, the European Union invested $1 billion in early 2013 \"the human brain project\", the United States spent $3 billion of \"brain fund project\", \"the project of Chinese version of the human brain is the focus of scientific attention future.

What is \"the project of the human brain?

Simple said, is to implement \"mimic the brain\", comparative biology data and share the resources with the scientific community around the world. Make the neuroscientists to genes, molecules and cells and human cognition, and behavior together; To explore the working mechanism of human brain, draw the full brain activity, according to the present incurable brain disease to develop new therapies.

In the future, a more accurate human brain activity diagrams, medical experts to the patient's brain activity compared with brain activity diagram in the database, which makes the doctor can detect the key differences in the patient's brain, so as to diagnose the disease and treatment. In addition, it will also pave the way for greater progress in the field of artificial intelligence.

In the human brain science research in China has been accelerated. On January 9, 2014, held a press conference of the Chinese academy of sciences, Chinese academy of sciences announced decision to implement excellent innovation center construction plan, the first five outstanding innovation center will be officially launched in the near future, the brain science excellence innovation center at the top of one of them, and marked the national academy of sciences, China will move into the human brain engineering field. In addition, \"much starker choices-and graver consequences-in planning outline\" to determine a batch of 2030 major science and technology innovation project and the project of science and technology, among them, there are six major s&t project, brain science and classes among brain research.
