By exploring the moments in time when certain technologies went from science fiction to science fact, author Steven Kotler discovered that advances and inventions come don't come from the people you'd expect them to.
One of the most interesting things about writing books is the macroscopic picture that emerges when you’re done. Larger patterns begin to reveal

"In rats, we’ve restored damaged memories via a ‘hippocampus chip’ implanted in the brain. 
In monkeys, we’ve done better, using a brain implant to “boost monkey IQ” in pattern matching tests.

Ramez Naam is the author of 5 books, including the award-winning Nexus trilogy of sci-fi novels. Follow him on twitter: @ramez. A shorter version
