"For the very first time, scientists have demonstrated that a brain implant can improve thinking ability in primates. By implanting an electrode array into the cerebral cortex of monkeys, researchers were able to restore — and even improve — their decision-making abilities. The implications for possible therapies are far-reaching, including potential treatments for cognitive disorders and brain injuries. But there's also the possibility that this could lead to implants that could boost your intelligence."
Apparently Science! has never seen Planet of the Apes. Or Lawnmower Man. Or, I don't know, 90% of the sci-fi/horror movies ever produced. C'mon guys, step out of the lab once in a while. It won't kill you, and it might you keep you from destroying civilization as we know it. If anyone needs me, I'll be practicing my Charlton Heston.
