This thread brought up something in my mind. People say that we only use 10% of our entire brain. If a person was able to use 80%+ of the brain think about what that human could be capable of. This is interesting to me

the idea of stem cells and cloning itself says thatit is possible to clone a brain.. not that sure though

As everyone else is saying, we can't since we still don't know how and why most of the brain functions. We're a few decades aways from being able to make a 'cyberbrain' so to speak. Well since i think you're talking about a cybernetic brain, not a normal tissue based one. Duplicating an organic brain would only be useful if you could retain the memories that were in the original brain, which I'm not sure is possible. If there is a way, it might not be as practical in application as having a cybernetic brain replacement.
So I think a cyberbrain would be the most feasible way to duplicate a brain.


As much as that sounds really cool, I believe genetic engineering would still eventually be the best way to duplicate brains. Cybernetics and quantum information technology can only go so far as store memories as data and allows a brain to function according to the original algorithms of the original brain, but the nature of things such as art and the subconscious are hard to fathom and are currently beyond the grasp of digital manipulation.

Also, there will always be the problem of "individuality despite synchronization". That is, no matter how perfect a duplicate it could be made, once it starts functioning, it becomes a totally different entity from the original brain and creates its own identity, even if you synchronized their memories and experiences all the time. (Jesus Christ, I watch too much GITS ><)

I have a stand that Man can duplicate the human brain in the future; but I can’t specify when(no one will) cos as what you guys were saying, scientist and neurologist are still way too far. They’re just starting to explore the human brain to understand it. Cyberbrain is what we can call it in the future(agree to Basou), but Cyberbrain may look like a thing designed with wires, cables and ICs. A human brain is complex, a delicate human part with cells and tissues. I still cannot fathom how this concept can be possible; but one thing for sure, it will in the future. I don’t have proof cos even geniuses don’t have their proof too. If I live a century more, perhaps I’ll find the answer.

This topic is so interesting so I want you guys to give information. If animal cloning is made possible, brain most probably will be cloned too.


I believe that the key to cyberbrains is to understand the fundamentals of the algorithms of the human brain based on neurological impulses and translate those into some quantum field mechanics. Basically, its a compact supercomputer.

Although the key problem is that very little of the brain is known and understood so far. The "right side", so to speak, of the brain, is mostly enigma, and so are things like sleep and subconscious.

why did the topic suddenly become cyber brains? XD i thought we were duplicating A HUMAN BRAIN

dude, we haven't even synthesized a single cell yet o.o (BUT we've come close!)
so why not a brain? xD
theres endless possibilities to what we humans are capable of. we might not be able to duplicate a human brain now.. but soon.. we just might

sounds very interesting originally I was just not supposed to think that the duplication process was able to duplicate the brain it seems that we can do that soon. come the science here getting better and better.

I suppose this is along the lines of creating an organic computer. A computer that uses organic material like brain cells to function rather then silicon switches in a processor. The theory is that a raindrops worth of organic computer material will have the same computing power as the worlds most powerful supercomputer, if not way faster. Imagine the possibilities of this technology!!!!!

Yea except it wouldn't really be called a computer anymore but a genetically engineered brain.

It would be possible but in the future... not now though

Im all for brain cloning!

imagin this:
a person that is born retarded going into brain surgery to remove he's brain and to be replaced with a more smarter one....

finally they can be normal

and maybe in the future it would be like the new thing, like plastic surgery.
"like omg i failed grade 12 AGAIN"
"you should really try what i've done."
"whaaa?"
(comes in to whisper)
*whispering* "dont say anything, because i'd like my personal issues to not wonder around the school. But...i got my brain done"
*shocked" OMG...NO WAY! no wonder u keep gettin 90s. ommggg so like ur brain isnt really urs. omg they did a good job! how much was it? i wana get it done too!
"you should, everyone finds me more attractive now, im SO glad i got rid of that stupid brain and now have a smarter one"

imagin going into get their brains more tightened so they can process information better. it would be like getting a nose job


You forgot the part where you say "so which model did you get? the XG-300?"
