Our interest is the secret springs of work of a brain. How can a new idea be born in the brain if the physical environment remains constant?

At last, we try to understand, how the brain would work in a new reality when enabled to operate external objects directly, without the help of muscles. For this purpose we create brain-computer interfaces (BCI) based...

the great stake of the modern democracy lies in the search for an answer to the question: how to make hear the voices of all the citizens in increasingly vast communities, which in any case exceed the limits of the old Greek system.
