My fascination with the human brain began at an early age mainly because of the seeds planted by my grandfather, the late Robert J. Doman M.D., whom I have written about before. The stories he told and the patients I was fortunate to meet over the years of my youth were gratifying evidence of the brain’s ability to rewire itself, long before the concept of neuroplasticity became something the medical community began to acknowledge. Now ideas that were discarded by critics in the past are beginning to enter the mainstream. Perhaps because of these early influences I continue to be intrigued by the possibilities that have begun to present themselves with the advent of advanced research methods and new technologies.
One important person who appears to share this fascination is Zack Lynch, who founded an organization that Advanced Brain Technologies is proud to be a member of; the Neurotechnology Industry Organization. The mission of NIO is “to accelerate treatments and cures for brain and nervous system diseases by increasing the awareness of neurotechnologies, reducing barriers to innovation and supporting long term industry growth.” http://www.neurotechindustry.org
Zack has just published a new book that I am very much looking forward to reading in the near future: The Neuro Revolution: How Brain Science Is Changing Our World. He has had unique access to many of the new technologies that could transform our society, and has shared information that all of us should be aware of, since these technologies could transform society as we know it.
