Our brain understands and interacts with every part of our body, yet they are still very poorly understood. To honor this week's Brain Awareness Week in March, let's take a look at an amazing discovery about the brain: that our brains can be hacked.
Essentially, by controlling where light hits specific areas of the brain, you can control the brain in small ways. Take a look at this video below from AsapScience to get a visual idea of how this works:
While this has only been tested on mice so far, the potential capabilties of this discovery are completely astounding. It will be very interesting to see how this technology develops in the future.
