3RD Generation Neural Networks
Army researchers soon will begin testing a new treatment for traumatic brain injury, or TBI, that involves sending nerve-impulses directly to the brain through the tongue.
A soldier would bite down on the battery powered device for about 20 or 30 minutes while carrying out a series of physical, occupational or cognitive exercises tailored specifically to treat his impairments, according to the Army. The idea is to improve the brain’s organizational ability and allow the patient to regain neural control.
Researchers say the tongue is an efficient sensory link to the brain because of the thousands of nerve fibers that make up its surface.
The device, which was developed by NeuroHabilitation Corporation with support of Marine veteran turned TV celebrity Montel Williams, is called a Portable NeuroModulation Stimulator, or “PoNS.” Pons is actually a formation of nerve fibers located on the brain stem whose main purpose is to pass information between the cerebellum and cerebrum.
Williams in 1999 was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, which disrupts communications between nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. The disease can cause a broad range of neurological and physical impairments.

I've been to China... just briefly...
But since I'm part of the business structure that offshores jobs there... I'm concerned.
I'm not against doing business with China. I'm against a non-regulated, highly tilted bias in China's favor. IP laws for instance. China signed on to honor copyright of music and software - they don't enforce it. Again, they are very 1950s. So, if we have to buy HERO (the movie) for $19.00 where royalties make it back to Zhigy (actress) and friends but yet, they get to buy Starwars for 15 yuan (that's about $2.00 US) but never pay a cent in royalty. That's unfair.
Where they prop up is that we get goods very cheap from China - one reason that exchange rate is go beneficial is because China cannot float their currency on the international market...
