1:26 am
once lost to agriculture and logging is for many i don't forget a bill experience i'm sure there is you know success stories in other countries and other places but having you know what i experience it firsthand here for so long for sure it's going to be something that i look back on tell people about you know it works in the cloud bridge reserve is now an example of what simple techniques patience and preservation can achieve a country wide shoot to progress is being made it's astounding to see what fifteen years of we growth can look like and according to the united nations reforestation is the best way to combine climate change and it's something costa rica's done very effectively through various incentives and government programs they've managed to reclaim almost a quarter of what was lost. costa rica's which natural heritage has long been a draw for students and tourists alike but this nation's reforestation if it's stand is a testament to what can be achieved at a time when the environment faces its greatest challenges and

a gallica al-jazeera at the clown bridge reserve in costa rica. the u.s. military has announced more than sixty million dollars in grants to build hardware that would read and write thoughts in the brain and they're hoping to do it all with a device as small as a sugar cube shake award visited the team in california. the light of a light or concrete or thumb something ten years ago dean lloyd a lawyer in palo alto california received the world's first artificial retina it allowed him to see it was a low quality video image but it was something. so i'm getting looks like you read about thirty. words from the dirt or grass or whatever isn't there some kind of foliage and you're going to the only difference between one surface and other though that's correct if that be a contrast point yet really think about that to make it useful but that technology is ancient compared to what's coming next a new military grant program is funding projects that seek to not just read the
1:28 am
information that's in your brain but actually write information into it basically we'd be putting synthetic versions of things like sight into the brain the university of california at berkeley is home to one of the six teams hoping to create within four years a device that can read and control one million neurons right now we can only watch one hundred at a time our goal is to be able to see that many neurons every one of them individually and not only to be able to watch what they do as you do an m.r.i. but to be able to play back to them the patterns of activity in space and in time so that you could actually reconstitute and synthesize the experience of the real world and thereby replace something that is missing because of an injury this military funded program could replace lost senses in wounded soldiers but could also put entirely new senses into healthy soldiers if it works the project will be
1:29 am
a world changing leap for example while we were developing this proposal we had a few meetings sort of saying we can't do this this is physically impossible will never get there our goal is to take like a microscope something like this and squash it down really tiny third can fit on the head of a mouse while it's running around that this is one of our first prototype cohen working on math that can turn a low grade two d. picture of the brain useful three d. images so they can take and get rough and it's like this. process. into a life easier than we can create custom patterns and should light exactly where we want at the right moment for and postdoctoral researcher nicolette the guy is building the system that will convert real world experiences into man with the directs lasers to light up individual neurons so here is a movie casablanca this is the this is what you have to turn that into for it to
1:30 am
then be shown on to the brain that you think wow you decide on a pattern you tell me which neurons you want to activate and we will at the exact time give the exact amount of light that's required to activate in your own the project could rebuild soldiers or eventually give them enhanced abilities on the battlefield by the way if it works we will have crossed into a new ethical and medical world a world where we can read humans thoughts and implant new ones jake aboard al-jazeera berkeley california. take a quick look at the top stories now russia's transport prosecutor has confirmed that all seventy one people on board a passenger plane that crashed shortly after takeoff from one of moscow's busiest airports have died and vesta gate is at the scene say they are looking at all
