    Books and critical thinking is already the best brain improvement and i hope they stay away from brains it would be abused anyway.

    Also would be good for economists from government and banks. And for economists of army who will calculate best proportions for number of rockets/money/caracteristics and qualyties of rockets and weapons. After all this substances will be good for everyone including mayrs/government staff

    Also not forget the fact that computers can be made more intelligent than humans and could provide best weapons and economic solutions

    I enjoyed the movie "Limitless", and am looking forward to "Lucy" or what ever it is called, but I think most experiments with brain improving chemicals mainly dealt with stuff like LSD etc to make soldiers more aggressive and less effected by death and violence and generally were unpredictable and therefore considered dangerous and unreliable.

    Well i said that because LSD or others were used for agresivity. For sure psychyatrists evolved whit the research upon brain improve since more logic is not dangerous. Is about stronger signals bwtween neurons. But what about a mecanism that would accelerate evolusion?

    If you mounted your brain on a chip.. what would be left to distinquish you from a chimpanzee?

    I have seen research where blind people have rudimentary CCD chip sensors to "see" light that are attached to the optic fibre transmitting information directly to the human brain... the person has to learn to interpret the electrical signals but in a sense they are able to sense brightness and darkness.

    the brain is just a bio mass that communicates with chemical electric signals much like a computer chip so it is not impossible.

    The main problem is that the capacity of the human brain is orders of magnitude more complex than any computer chip today.

    well yes but in few time the power of computer chips will override human brain. then a chip can be mounted oh human brains to improve human brain. in not even neccesary to be more than human. an an simple 15% from human brain chip would increase power of calculation. also supercomputers are today as powerfull as a human brain. did someone tried connect a human brain to a supercomputer?

    and the problem is which nation make for the first time connection and made a improve in human brain. that nation would have first the best weapons

    The main problem would be communication... with the CCD chips they sent electrical signals to the persons brain... that person had to learn what those signals meant which took time and practise.

    Eventually they could "see" light and dark and obstructions or bright flashes, but they couldn't see the way we do.

    Compared to a human brain even a super computer is limited... limited in terms of available connections and speed. For calculations your brain will be slower than a super computer but even just basic things like imagination is beyond most computers.

    equally defining a language for both to communicate would be difficult.

    there are lots of barriers and problems before we start downloading our memories to Youtube, or storing backups to storage media... or like on the Matrix being able to learn things by uploading programmes.

    what if improving the human brain makes that person want to stop war rather than produce new more capable weapons?

    that person would be alone and others would search for reasons......in a way stopping the war is a bad ideea. every day we have a war. whit others....

    here, The famous DARPA brain chip in development.

    there is a very interesting documentary in youtube where they mention it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2wO1CY7OcA

    If you are familiar with the manga GUNMM by Yukito Kishiro, you know what they are talking about

    Look at "throught the wormhole" and see episode whit brain hack. By monitorizing alfa and teta waves in brain can be said when is perfect moment to do something.

    Usually for those who already have some problems with focusing, not good or practical for a healthy brain.

    There are some tehniques that do improve performance. Simple tehniques. Like one i saw on youtube. A device made by someone that i dont remember create electricity in the brain and stimulate brain. Also i saw others that do same kind sort of tehniques.
