Josh bohbot sec B- Alzheimer’s rat

Biotech is now helping to understand disease such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. The robot we saw in class that was controlled by rat brain cells was used to observe how disrupting the neurons in the robots rat brain what it remembered. The creators of the robot taught it, through the brain cells, to recognize its surroundings. Once it knows how to this the brain tissue will damage to simulate brain disease and memory loss. Looking at simple small tissue can definitely enlighten on how our brains handle memory and memory loss. I’ve seen how disease like Alzheimer can affect people, my grandfather would many times think to be somewhere else or misrecognize people he knew. If this artificial brain reacts in similar it can broaden our understanding of the disease.
