Explaining New Technology to Different People


I found this video about mapping the human brain interesting. I saw some similarities with the role playing activities we have been doing during the Development and Research presentations. Here we have a professor and innovator of neuro-science describing the research into "Connectomics" to people ranging from a 5 year old boy to a neuro-science Ph. D. student and an entrepreneur.


It is interesting to see not only the different ways the topic is presented but also the different questions he poses for everyone and aspects he presents and focuses on.

I am certainly left with many questions about Connectomics after this video such as how neuro-chemicals might be represented after having the brain mapped.

Also what can we say about the mission to preserve brains and supposedly individual persons in a computer?

Many questions..

I for one would like to see this technology being used to advance learning strategies or techniques.
