You Can Now Upload Knowledge Directly into Your Brain

In the Matrix, Keanu Reeves had himself uploaded martial arts, (Neo) brain connected the computer through a cable into his skull. He was able to use the uploaded skills right away.

It is a science fiction movie, so there is no surprise such scenes appear. However, in real life, a team of scientists are trying to achieve the same thing.


They announce a new way of learning, which is quite similar as the one in the Matrix movie. They have a simulator, which can give information directly in the brains of people and they instantly will possess the qualities that the simulator has. Due to the information which is out there on the Hughes Research Laboratories, on the internet and on their website, researchers saw that complex skills can be modulated by electrical brain stimulation.

Moreover, a team of scientists has predicted the possibility of an advanced software that instantly facilitates skills into the brain. There are some which are skeptics and doubting this to be true. But the researchers from Hughes Research Laboratories have made it happen.


Dr. Matthew Phillips and a team of researchers used trans-cranial current stimulation and have actually done it.

Dr. Phillips explained, “We measured the brain activity patterns of six commercial and military pilots, and then transmitted these patterns into novice subjects as they learned to pilot an airplane in a realistic flight simulator. We measured the average g-force of the plane during the simulated landing and compared it to control subjects who received a mock brain stimulation.”

Dr. Phillips states that the subjects received stimulation through an electrode which is embedded into the head caps. Furthermore this gave the pilots the abilities which they have never had before.


This research by Dr. Phillips and his team shows for the first time that it is quite good for speeding up learning. He said that with brain stimulation the learning routine will be accelerated.

“As we discover more about optimizing, personalizing, and adapting brain stimulation protocols, we’ll likely see these technologies become routine in training and classroom environments. It is possible that brain stimulation could be implemented for classes like drivers’ training, SAT prep, and language learning,” Dr. Phillips said.

Critics say that this research has no scientific evidence that it can be performed. But he explained on YouTube that it can be done.

Dr. Phillips said, “Our system is one of the first of its kind. It’s a brain stimulation system. It sounds kind of sci-fi, but there’s a large scientific basis for the development of our system. The specific task we were looking at was piloting an aircraft, which requires a synergy of both cognitive and motor performance. When you learn something, your brain physically changes. Connections are made and strengthened in a process called Neuro-plasticity. It turns out that certain functions of the brain, like speech and memory, are located in very specific regions of the brain, about the size of your pinky.”
