1. The chip:
A 4-millimeter square silicon chip studded with 100 hair-thin microelectrodes isembedded in Nagle's primary motor cortex - the region of the brain responsible for controllingmovement.
2. The connector:
When Nagle thinks "move cursor up and left" (toward email icon), his corticalneurons fire in a distinctive pattern; the signal is transmitted through the pedestal plug attached to hisskull.
3. The converter:
The signal travels to a shoebox-sized amplifier mounted on Nagle's wheelchair,where it's converted to optical data and bounced by fiber-optic cable to a computer.
4. The computer:
BrainGate learns to associate patterns of brain activity with particular imaginedmovements - up, down, left, right - and to connect those movements to a cursor.
or my term paper, I researched on Cyber Terrorism. I believe that Cyber Terrorism is a big problem in our society andmay even be a worldwide problem for all humanity today. I want to do my term paper on Cyber Terrorism because Ihad some personal experience with this sort of terrorism. About a two years ago, I encountered a Hacker on AmericaOnline. I opened an unknown message in my mailbox that was titled "Free Nude Teens". Then about a couple weekslater, we received all sorts of bills that had to be paid. My father received bills for many different things such aselectronics, clothes, and other items that had been purchased under our account on the Internet. My father was sopissed off because he thought that my brothers or I had purchased all those items. So we called the Company andfound that our computer had been hacked into. And the so called hacker purchased items on our account number.And we found that the hacker gained entry by a message that I had open!ed . So we ended up paying only athousand dollars out of almost six-thousand dollars worth of goods purchased on America Online. I want to do myresearch paper on Cyber Terrorism because I want to stress to people that this is a big problem and will becCyber Terrorism can come in the form of misinformation. Just that one sentence says a lot about how unstoppablethe force of Cyber Terrorism is. 1) All accounts should have passwords and the passwords should be unusual anddifficult to guess. But the proposal for a National Homeland Security Agency is sure to stir controversy, because it willtake resources away from some well-entrenched agencies. I fully agree that hacking is a criminal offense and shouldbe prosecuted. And Bush administration officials say they will look closely at the commission's recommendations. Butthe deputy national security adviser, said agencies simply need better cooperation in the fight against terrorism, noanother new agency. It still is an important stride in the fight against hackers. Although, if hacking is done, and ahacker is caught, the consequences are sometimes not that wonderful. There is a number of things that our country isrealizing about Cyber terrorism. They even have chat rooms for hackers to share their hacking knowledge with eachother. It is hard for even the best of hackers to break into a computer due to the strict security and punishment. 3)Check with venders for upgrades and patches.The Internet is, literally, a network of networks. It is made of thousands of interconnected networks spanning theglobe. The computers that form the Internet range from huge mainframes in research establishments to humble PCsin people's homes and offices. Despite the recent publicity, the Internet is not a new thing. Its roots lie in a collectionof computers that were linked together in the 1970s to form the US Department of Defense's communications
