Interactive video lesson plan for: Can Brain Implants Make Us Smarter?

Activity overview:

Share on Facebook:

Is it possible for us to significantly boost our intelligence within a lifetime? Studies show that changes in our lifestyle like exercise and nutrition can help increase brain power - but these improvements are modest at best. Perhaps the future of intelligence will come in the form of a brain implant? We’ve already seen some amazing research to get computers and brains to communicate more easily - and the future implications are limitless!

If you could boost any part of your mental faculties, what would it be and why? Let us know in the comments below!
