Imaginative Construction

  • Joseph R. Carvalko Jr.


This chapter explores consciousness and the development of artificial constructs that someday will interface to the brain and assist humans in exhibited both conventional and new forms of creativity. Neuroscientists have discovered neural correlates of subjective phenomena by manipulating neurons, via molecular biology, and then using the latest magnetic imaging technology to observe areas of the brain. These studies will lead to modelling organisms, as well as to further efforts at large-scale genomic analysis and manipulation. However, a lack of fully understanding human consciousness, may prevent us from fully synthesizing a brain, or what passes for human imagination.
