This is fascinating. Researchers now have a working prosthesis that improves memory performance in humans. In test results, subjects experienced a 37% increase in memory performance, which surprised the researchers.
There is still a lot of work ahead, and the researchers note that we are still probably decades away from devices for use in routine situations.
Thanks for catching this one, David Amerland.

Augmented Brains Are Coming
Well, not on their own of course. They are housed inside human skulls. In probably the clearest sign yet that we live in the age of human brain power where we seek to make the most of what’s between our ears, researchers have successfully used what is potentially a brain implant to boost memory recall. The story is fascinating and it indicates where things are heading.
