DARPA paving the way for a future brain-based Internet

___ DARPA Wants Brain Interfaces for Able-Bodied Warfighters (IEEE Spectrum): “Until now, the neuroscience programs at DARPA, the mad science wing of the Department of Defense, have focused on technologies for warfighters who have returned home with disabilities of the body or brain. For example, programs have funded research on prosthetic limbs that are wired into the nervous system and brain implants that could treat post-traumatic stress disorder. But the way the military fights wars is changing, and so must DARPA’s priorities … The Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3) program will fund research on tech that can transmit high-fidelity signals between the brain and some external machine without requiring that the user be cut open for rewiring or implantation…The program has two tracks: One for researchers developing completely non-invasive tech and the other those working on “minutely invasive” technologies… DARPA’s Sanchez says that making brain tech easy to use will open the floodgates. “We can imagine a future of how this tech will be used. But this will let millions of people imagine their own futures,” he says. “What do you want to do with your brain?” News in Context: DARPA invests in nonsurgical neurotechnologies for eventual use in healthy human subjects Eight research teams working with DARPA to discover best ways to activate neuroplasticity and accelerate learning DARPA launche...

While working at a mental health clinic in Harlem years ago, I got used to hearing the most traumatic stories I could have ever imagined. They were the normal way to live for many of my clients. One day a woman in her 40s, who lived in a drug den and had gone through a frightful marriage before her husband was imprisoned, asked me how she could know if her son was traumatized. As a then-inexperienced clinician, I took out the last version of the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) off my shelf the same way a cowboy would take out his pistol from his belt, ready to shoot off a diagnosis. Diagnostic ...
