Neurotechnology

The neurotechnological brigade (people who have the quaint belief that consciousness is a chemical/electrical sponge residing in the head) have come up with more material for their Barbie Doll view of the universe.

The Defence Advance Research Project Agency in the US is now funding neuroimaging techniques that try to interpret brain thoughts... and technologies (of course) that could potentially influence them.

But it gets even sillier... a technique has now been patented called brain fingerprinting. The company’s website claims that this technique can detect whether someone has been to a terrorist training camp. Of course it can.

I hear that the US spends more on its military budget than all other countries put together. I’m not surprised if they are funding rubbish like the above.
