Current Other (Main) Interests
After all, they are all related. Somehow.
- Memory - how does it work? What is the role of the medial temporal
lobe, the limbic system, brainstem and septal nuclei in memory consolidation?
How can memory be enhanced?
- The ties between computer science, neurology, psychology and complexity - how does minds work, how can they be simulated/emulated/augmented, what are their powers and limitations?
- Complex systems - what is needed to create a complex, self-evolving system?
- Information visualization
- How to amplify human intelligence the most.
- The philosophy of human enhancement, and how it links with society.
