BRAIN RECOVERY PROGRAM

Barking up the wrong tree?

From a couple of months ago (a little tongue in cheek):


Now the Brain Recovery Program has issued its first quarterly newsletter:


This comes with an interesting supplement, posing an interesting question:


So much high tech, such very clever people, so much money being spent.

Such expressed intentions. Oh that all this activity should will bring a fraction of what is hoped from it.

Personally I suspect that we shall learn that more research is needed, yet higher tech, more clever people, yet more money to be raised and donated.  So it goes...

Cynical or what? Is there really any reason to expect otherwise of the model apparently so unquestioningly adopted here?

  1. A Mr Joseph Emilio Pineda (probably a robot) offers an instructive Comment to Conductive World's recent posting on hemispherectomy –

    'Brain supplements like nootropics improved brain functions and help patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease and other related brain malfunctions.'

    Mr Pineda has helpfully left a URL to his blog. It explains further –

    'Nootropic supplements are smart drugs, memory enhancers, neuro enhancers, cognitive enhancers, and intelligence enhancers.'

    Mr Pineda's blogsite informs that he is a business man, from Iligan City in the Philppines, and a sci-fi fan. I have no reason to expect either to be true but he may still understand what I mean when I say that it is surely time to incorporate Isaac Asimov's First Law of Robotics into the criminal law.

  2. It looks like word verification is not infallible!
