Recording Your Mind

A new technology by Infineon Technologies(1) may one day allow researchers to record a person's every thought and memory, and perhaps even transfer that person's lifetime of experiences to another.
Infineon's "Neuro-Chip" is cabable of directly interfacing with a living nerve cell. Thousands of sensors on the chip read the electrical activity of the cell, amplify it, then transfer the signals to a computer for processing. The above photo shows the Neuro-Chip connected to living snail brains.
