Organic to inorganic interface to emulate or enhance brain wave.

06/01/2007 8:08 PM

Ok. Now we get serious because I think there is enough of us helpfull people out there to solve a very simple problem...We all know a frog leg can act under an electric influance. Is there a polymere outher that we on a kind hearted act come up with to utilize evething of all technolgies let our children walk? The start would be a polymere that acts as a muscle tissue. But better yet look at the control...Is there not a program that could be its mandate to walk o self preservence? We should be able to do this for our kids; besides you don't know that if you don't help it wouldn't happen to you. Lest not for whom we put our future in!

Going one step further. Nerve damage which prevents muscle use can be reversed so that children can walk again. Brain training technology that demonstrated nerve regeneration was exhibited in 1992 at the NASA Conference held in Baltimore, USA. Many years ago, University of Chicago was issued a patent for regrowing amputated limbs which they demonstrated by simulating the electrical fields found at amputation sites in salamanders.

Dr. Persinger (Professor of Neurology in Canada) has been working with magnetic fields that affect neural functioning. You can Google his work.

Simple brain pattern training can allow a child to use mind control to direct the activity of virtually any device. Interfacing nerve ends at amputated sites also allows for device control.

Muscle Wire is already being used to simulate muscle action for prosthetics. An electrical current causes it to shorten. Google a few suppliers and you can rig up your own experiments.

Several crystalline polymers (not as mature as Muscle Wire) have demonstrated muscle-like behavior through shortening of chain dimensions caused by electrical current.

A nobel quest, Ashman. I'd start by learning how the natural muscle polymers are composed and the proteins involved, such as Myosin, which composes ~ 50 % of typical muscle mass, the various Actin proteins (G-actin, F-actin, etc), the action of calcium ions in activation (analogous to the role of calcium ions in blood clotting), and similar. Some starting point references: 1. Biomaterials Science, 2nd ed, edited by Buddy Ratner et al, 2004, ISBN-13:978-0-12-582463-7, se for example page 719; The Chemistry of Muscle Contraction, E.W. Taylor, Annu Rev Biochem, 1872; 41 (10):577-616 for starters. There a number of studies being conducted at biolabs, such as at MIT, and many of the hospitals, mostly those associated with Universities, around the world. There is a tremendous amount of information. Also study how neurons transmit information chemically, the role of acetylcholinesterase and acetylcholinesterase inhibitors in neuron function, etc. as a starting point. This will give you some guidance re transmission of brain waves and electrical signals chemically. Good luck!!
