  1. Was thinking about Neuralink and the ability to communicate with much greater clarity (last bit of this video is on the future of communication). Do you think this will be possible? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXS8r7ITD7I&t=
  2. "By tuning into a subset of brain waves, University of Michigan researchers have dramatically reduced the power requirements of neural interfaces while improving their accuracy—a discovery that could lead to long-lasting brain implants that can both treat neurological diseases and enable mind-controlled prosthetics and machines. The team, led by Cynthia Chestek, associate professor of biomedical engineering and core faculty at the Robotics Institute, estimated a 90% drop in power consumption of neural interfaces by utilizing their approach." https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-07-ultra
  3. I think social cooperation is key. High intelligence seems like a sure fire thing for evolution to select for, yet we're the only ones. Our babies are some of the most fragile when they're born, yet they're able to develop because of humans socially cooperating on a larger scale than any other animal.
  4. Interesting article about the development of drug delivery particles that can pass the blood brain barrier. I wonder how much of an impact this could have https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-07-drug-delivery-particles-neurotransmitters-passport.html#:~:text=The%20study%20authors%20made%20use,gain%20access%20throughout%20the%20brain.&text=The%20LNPs%20can%20be%20injected,the%20drugs%20across%20the%20barrier.
