First i would like to mention that this is just a drop in the bucket of all the cognitive neural science research that is going on world wide. The goal is to reverse engineer the (human computer) and this is proving to be a very challenging problem that is being attacked on many fronts.
We must not forget that the goal is not to be able to just repair the brain, but to also improve on it. We need to develop a blue print of all its parts before we start to truly modify it.
The next generation will not be born!
The next generation will be designed...
So the quest rages on and our mortality is fading with it.
