Question

Can we download/upload information to or from the brain?

Answer

We put this to Dr Smitha Mundasad:

Smitha - I think that one's a little bit more difficult. I think that brings up a lot of issues. Who controls what you can download? Would you be able to download something from someone else's brain? I think we're a little bit far away from that, but there's a lot of progress in neuroscience, so it wouldn't surprise me if it happened.
