  • Biomedical engineering should give you a solid basis. Like Misslitty said, you can customize your track to some degree. Talk with some profs, pick a relevant internship, and you should by that time know what else you may need.
  • I guess it depends on what your goals are. If you want to go paleo/keto just because you want to see how your body reacts, go for it. If you're an athlete, going low carb will probably make your life very difficult. As someone who walks at least on…
  • If you want to buy magnets and coating for a DIY job, searching on this website should turn something up. Also, they implant magnets at piercingutrecht. They could also give you some pointers if you want to do it yourself.
  • In the long term, mindfulness or some kind of anytime/anywhere type of meditation like misslitty said is probably the best solution. And take a walk before your test. And the days before your test. (Actually, it's a very good idea to walk every day …
  • Looks pretty cool. Hope there will be video streams/recordings of talks.
  • @glims "As someone who has electrocuted many people from this community, I can say that none of them seemed immune to electricity. " Only on the biohack.me forum.
  • I'm also Dutch. Not an actual biohacker, but am interested in the various topics on these forums.
  • Check it out. Contains some methods I had never heard of. Also contains nice table with spatial resolution of different methods. https://spiral.imperial.ac.uk:8443/bitstream/10044/1/18796/2/Neuromodulation: present and emerging methods..pdf
  • EEG signals are very noisy because they have to pass through the skull to get to the electrodes. Going sub-dermal will circumvent the skin, but won't solve the biggest issue, namely the skull. The only thing you might achieve is an easier set-up of …
  • I'm sure there are tests to measure finger sensitivity, or other standardized tests for stuff like this (pain, heat sensitivity, etc). Next time if anyone is going to try this, compare scores on such a test between the NGF user and a control, and co…
  • What a coincidence. I just started working in Utrecht and am officially moving there this Monday. Don't have any implants myself, but I am very interested in using technology to replace or augment human function. I work in the neuroprosthetics resea…
  • @ElectricFeel Bless you. @TheGreyKnight A spatial resolution of a few millimeters is definitely enough for a working BCI. You can even get a BCI working with EEG, so the mm-range is definitely 'deep' enough. ECoG falls within the same range. Of cou…
  • Yeap! Clearly alpha! Seriously though: I don't have a lot of hands-on experience with EEG, but know a bit about it. If you want to learn the basics, a good place to start as always is wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electroencephalography#…

  • What do you guys mean with the term Strong AI? I used this definition from wikipedia: "is the intelligence of a (hypothetical) machine that could successfully perform any intellectual task that a human being can." In my opinion we can talk strictl…
  • As already said, strong AI is possible since it's just a matter of gradually adding more complexity to current day AI. I don't believe you 'soul'/consciousness is synonymous with your brain. A subjective experience is clearly not the same as a phy…
  • What a shame. I found this: https://tel.archives-ouvertes.fr/tel-01151130/document End of page 15 under Conducting Polymers header, it says: "Finally, CPs have been shown repeatedly to be biocompatible, hosting a wide variety of cell types" Mor…
  • You don't have to worry about rejection if you're Adam Jensen.
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electroreception This what you mean? It's definitely possible THEORETICALLY to introduce these traits in any other species, just not sure how much you'll be able to pick up (with air being the medium). Also, we won't b…
  • Just curious: what do the actual FES electrodes look like, i.e. how big is their surface area? And related to that: How big of an area of musculature would you stimulate by activating the current? You talk about a muscle area. Does that mean you wil…
  • @bciuser Thanks for the info. Do you know if this has been published yet? I couldn't find anything.
  • Yeah I'd be interested to know how they managed to relay the sensory information of the hand to the user. The way he described it, they directly stimulated his cortex. If that's the case, that just goes to show how plastic the brain is. Or maybe the…
  • Thanks Gareth and hello, Let me just start by saying I am not an expert on SVR, so take everything I say with a grain of salt. Stuff like this is just something I'm interested in. To answer your first question: Theoretically, yes! This is basicall…
  • Hey all, Simply imagining speech is not how subvocal recognition works. Shine has the right idea: You need to activiate the actual muscles that produce speech. Basically, you keep your mouth closed, but talk through your nose (you can also more eas…
