• Yes, technology has advanced.

    Yes, because technology has advanced over years and now is a vast topic. And due to that we are now able to explore the brain.Although it may be difficult since brain is the most complex organ in the body to understand .We are able to understand our brain. With time and science humans can understand the brain.It is possible to know how the brain works because because scientists have made many interesting different discoveries. Science has revolutionized the era of technology.

  • Yes , of course

    Technology has advanced over time and now is a very major topic . A brain cannot be so complex enough for us to explore .With time and science, we can explore the brain , but it may not be as easy as we think it is .It is possible to know about how our brain works because scientist have revolutionized the era of science . And now it so advanced that it is possible to explore our own brain.

  • Yes, I wish.

    Brain is a maze and the only thing knows the right way is also brain. Technology changed a lot in time with our brains. All the humanity tought it was impossible to connect between contents in the oldest centuries but now, 6/7 percent of humanity has mobile phones. So, altought we see it impossible, I believe that this question will have been answered just like the others.

    Some of the swedish norologists have explained that they found a way to get entry permit into the middle system of thinking center of brain. It shows that science and consequently our brains increased time by time. If we make a situation assessment, we can clearly see that we are on the right way to found the exit of that -brain- maze.

    As a result of all those things I told, I wanna finish with a proverb: "看迷宮的結束的唯一途徑也是一個迷宮." (The only way to see the end of the maze is also a labyrinth.)

  • We are learning how the mind works.

    Since the beginning of the study of psychology we have been studying the mind with scientific methods, and as a result have learned increasing amounts about how the mind works. As long as this research continues the field will continue to advance and we will one day fully understand how the mind works just as we have been able to fully understand other scientific fields through diligent study and coordinated research efforts.

  • Yes, scientists continue to make progress.

    Yes, it is possible to know how the mind works, because scientists have made many miraculous discoveries. They have helped stroke victims regain use of their brain. People who suffer traumatic injuries have taught other parts of their brains to perform the same functions. With time and science, humans can understand the brain.

  • The brain is the most complex organ in our body:

    What portion of the brain it took centuries for people to investigate is only a small proportion of the entire working of the brain. If you notice, there are so many mental and physical disorders linked to the brain, which scientists still cannot explain. Although it may seem that we know so much about the brain, there is yet so much more to discover. The Neocortex is a recently developed layer of the brain, meaning that we do not even know the extent the brain can develop.
    Another argument is that every human's brain becomes wired differently based on so many factors. Trying to understand the brain completely would mean learning about the functioning of every human brain, which is evidently not possible.

  • Too much of our brain we have not yet used.

    We barely know about our brains ourselves.

    As humans, we do not have much consciousness over how our brain thinks. Although technology has allowed x-rays to considerably better understand the physical features of the brain, in order to be able to see how one's brain works entirely. No science has yet explained how our brain can generate and use our knowledge. We have only a faint idea as of it having something to do with brain cells. This brings us to a more psychological question. Do we as human beings wish for our brain to be fully discovered because if it ever does become possible for technology to discover how our minds work, those who posses this knowledge can monitor everything that happens inside our brain. With this in mind, no one will wish to behold technology of that source being restrained by morals. Morals, then becoming an obstacle for humans.

    One of the opposition has stated that with time and science, we can fully discover how our brain works. Although I do not disagree with the statement itself, I do disagree with the ability of that statement allowing us to fully discover our brain. Science has a limit as the human body has a limit. The opposition may argue that when living things reach a limit, we will evolve but when it happens, doesn't our brain evolve with it? This will only go one full circle hence never allowing us to fully understand how our brain works. The opposition may argue as of how we are becoming closer to high leveled science because thousands of years ago, we could have been single-cell organisms and now we have evolved into mammals. Please keep in mind the aspect of astronomy though. Science estimates that between 1.75 to 3 billion years from now on, the earth will be pushed out of the habitual area by the sun along with the statement that all bombs and missiles in the world right now are enough to destroy the world 60-70 times. Under these circumstances, I highly doubt the possibilities of the human race surviving long enough in order to know how the mind works.

    Accordingly to the two points above, humans have a chance, slim to none to find out how the mind works.

  • I hope we will never be able to know it all

    Though we have some good knowledge of the brain, we are far from knowing how the mind works. We can do some EEGs and stick electrodes into some brains to observe a few neurons, but there is frightening research underway on this topic currently.
    Our tax dollars are at work, and while some may approve of politicians using millions of our dollars annually to study the brain in ultra-fine detail, one should not be so naive.
    The latest issue of Scientific American outlines some of the techniques being developed. If you are one of those people that think politicians and Science's big-business partnerships are all benevolent and focused on the good of humanity, then you will be all for the new BRAIN program. Those of you who understand what will be possible when people in the government will be able to go far beyond simple EEG's - that they are working on putting nano-devices in the brain that will be able not only to SEE what's going on in there but to trigger neurons to fire (switch on ) when desired....If they ever get this kind of technology up and working, say hello to a world as scary as the MATRIX movie.
    Like the mysteries of the sub-atomic world, which continue to befuddle scientists, I hope the Creator has designed our minds with enough complexity that no one will ever get that much power over humanity.
