MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Computers mimic the human brain. And vice versa.
With this in mind, scientists at the University of the Philippines embarked on a study of age-related memory loss, and today they announced a breakthrough that will solve those “senior moments” once and for all.
The scientists believe that memory loss is the result of the human brain reaching its full capacity. The older one gets, the more information is stored in the brain, and just like with a computer, when its memory becomes full, it starts to slow down.
The solution, they said, is to implant a chip or computer RAM (Random Access Memory) into the brain. This can add gigs of memory to the slowing human brain.
“It’s just like implanting a pace-maker for the human heart,” the scientists said. “We have both the medical and technological capability to do the brain implants.”
Today’s announcement sent the value of computer chips skyrocketing at the Philippine Stock Exchange, especially those of companies engaged in computer trade with China.
The news also eclipsed the unveiling of Apple’s iPhone X.
