Improve brain power: No matter who you are, couldn't you stand a little more brain power? Higher level cognitive function is an upgrade that can change everything. This talk was given at the Humanity+ Conference and was originally titled "The Augmented Author: Technologies to Upgrade People Who Write." In this video I showcase several of my favorite (and most tested) tools that will improve brain power, be it for the writer, student, entrepreneur, or anyone anywhere that desires a cognitive kick start. HOW TO IMPROVE BRAIN POWER: Video Rundown 1:05 Biohacking the Unconscious Parts of Your Brain 2:50 EmWave 2 -- Monitor Your Heart Rate & "The Zone" Neurological, Biochemical, Mechanical, & electromagnetic 5:00 Radioactive Sugar Measurement 5:59 Dual N-Back Training -- Double Your Working Memory; Pay Attention to Your States of Consciousness 7:55 Electrostimulation (tDCS & CES) 9:45 Direct Stimulation (Lasers!) 11:35 EEG Neurofeedback 13:25 HEG Biofeedback, (aka Upgraded Focus) Blood flow training, feels where your brain works 14:24 Light! Orange-Tinted Glasses & Blue LED lights 15:00 Sound Entrainment 15:30 Modafinil 15:55 Bulletproof Hardware (Bulletproof Coffee & Diet) 17:00 Q & A This was an awesome conference to speak at, filled with smart people and lots of fascinating presentations. The point of this talk was to convey that there are existing technologies and techniques that are being successfully used to improve brain power, raise IQ (it's NOT static), provide mental clarity, etc. These have been tested and the results quantified as providing measurable effects! Try some - improve brain power and enjoy!

http://www.ted.com Pawan Sinha details his groundbreaking research into how the brain's visual system develops. Sinha and his team provide free vision-restoring treatment to children born blind, and then study how their brains learn to interpret visual data. The work offers insights into neuroscience, engineering and even autism. TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Featured speakers have included Al Gore on climate change, Philippe Starck on design, Jill Bolte Taylor on observing her own stroke, Nicholas Negroponte on One Laptop per Child, Jane Goodall on chimpanzees, Bill Gates on malaria and mosquitoes, Pattie Maes on the "Sixth Sense" wearable tech, and "Lost" producer JJ Abrams on the allure of mystery. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design, and TEDTalks cover these topics as well as science, business, development and the arts.

Kwabena Boahen is using the human brain as the blueprint for designing radically more powerful and energy-efficient computers. In this short demo, Boahen describes how his Brains in Silicon lab at Stanford University has created computer chips with "synapses" and "neurons" -- and how these chips might revolutionize computing.

In a classic research-based TEDx Talk, Dr. Lara Boyd describes how neuroplasticity gives you the power to shape the brain you want. Recorded at TEDxVancouver at Rogers Arena on November 14, 2015. YouTube Tags: brain science, brain, stroke, neuroplasticity, science, motor learning, identity, TED, TEDxVancouver, TEDxVancouver 2015, Vancouver, TEDx, Rogers Arena, Vancouver speakers, Vancouver conference, ideas worth spreading, great idea, Our knowledge of the brain is evolving at a breathtaking pace, and Dr. Lara Boyd is positioned at the cutting edge of these discoveries. In 2006, she was recruited by the University of British Columbia to become the Canada Research Chair in Neurobiology and Motor Learning. Since that time she has established the Brain Behaviour Lab, recruited and trained over 40 graduate students, published more than 80 papers and been awarded over $5 million in funding. Dr. Boyd’s efforts are leading to the development of novel, and more effective, therapeutics for individuals with brain damage, but they are also shedding light on broader applications. By learning new concepts, taking advantage of opportunities, and participating in new activities, you are physically changing who you are, and opening up a world of endless possibility. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

As the 21st Century begins, we face not one great national and global threat, but many. Religious and ethnic violence, climate change, dwindling resources, economic turbulence and poverty and disease among the world's most vulnerable threaten our wellbeing and our very existence. Roundtable Panelists: Historian David Kennedy, professor emeritus, Kavita Ramdas, CEO Global Fund for Women, U.S. Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Los Angeles, Stanford President John Hennessy, Associate Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, Carly Fiorina, former head of HP, and Jeff Raikes, CEO of the Gates Foundation The Roundtable at Stanford: http://www.stanford.edu/roundtable/ Stanford Channel on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/stanford
As part of the Laura And Wagner Foundation's "Disabled Attitudes" Special Reports, Laura Meddens interviews Mike May via Skype. Mike was blinded by a chemical explosion at the age of 3, but went on to become a record setting Paralympic downhill skiing champion. A few years ago, much of Mike's vision was restored via a stem cell transplant. You can read more about Mike at http://www.SenderoGroup.com, where he is the President of the company that develops assistive devices for the blind and visually-impaired. Along with his friend Stevie Wonder, Mike has been a very vocal proponent of improving accessibility to technology for the disabled. Mike tells Laura that, even after all this time, the disabling comments of others can still be quite hurtful and that he also fees we still have much to do to improve attitudes towards the disabled.
