Panning for Nuggets (Wk 4)

Nugget 1: This McNugget is so interesting because it proves in a way that technology is advancing. Scientist has told the public for many years that artificial neuro systems could not be implanted. Having a brainstem implant (which is the area that transmit information to the brain) is a major successful, this nugget keeps me hopeful for future neurotechnology.

Nugget 2: Brain to Brain connects to my above post of the brain stem implant because I assume within future technology a small chip or molecular piece could inhibit the brain stem which is the stem that transmit information to the brain and from the brain to the body. More over the article  discuss the pros and cons of this advancement also the tedious work behind the engineering process.

Nugget 3: My above nuggets all interconnect with this nugget, which describe mind to mind communication. It’s interesting to think of how mind to mind gaming will evolve, the article describe the benefits that medicine will uncover with neurotechnology in which a signal that is induced from the doctor to the area that needs to be improved cured  will be light work vs surgery and the healing  process will happen naturally.

Panning for Nuggets (wk 3)

Nugget 1: I find this nugget to be very informing because it elaborate the connection of mobility, technology, and communication. Communication and technology has become inseparable because of flexibility. For instance (at home) while preparing to go to class I get an email from my professor explaining what we will be covering in class. Something as simple as an email, will determine my mood going into class, expectations, and resources I need to be ready for class. This is a powerful source because I could retain more information from my class session from being prepared, vs. not receiving an email, being unprepared, and having a negative mood while in class due to not being prepared. Which connects to my second nugget.

Nugget 2: Explain how communication will advance, and some things we can never replace which is human interaction. Although emailing, texting, etc could be of good use. My outcome could default if I interpret the communication being sent wrong. The professor could have simply misplaced a period or forgotten a word or two (not saying it’s possible) and my preparation would go to waste because of misinterpretation of communication. Therefore it is possible we will create better communication to help us reason and inform one another but it will come with the removal of human interaction.  What also intrigue’s me about digital communication are the connections I associate with a digital text from someone. For instance if my mom sends me a text ending in a phrase she use repetitively in person, when I read it I will associate how she interpret it in person from the text. I believe this is neuroconnection that we as humans develop with our personal relationships/communications that will never dwindle.
