BrainHack or NeuroHack or NeuroEngineering is a form of biohack focusing on the brain and Central Nervous System. It includes many methods of manipulating or interfering with the fundamental structure and/or function of neurons for improvement or repair.
The main goal of neurohacking is optimal mental health. Other goals include damage repair, simulated reality, prevention of disease and augmentation of abilities or of intelligence overall. It utilises information and technology mainly from the fields of epigenetics, bio/neurofeedback, psychopharmacology, biological psychology and functional analysis.
The term neurohacking is also used for a method of attempting to retrieve information from the brain (such as passwords, locations, etc.) without consent. In data retrieval, some sort of Brain–Computer Interface (BCI) is typically used, where the brains neuron synapses are captured + recorded to be processed for information. Technological advancements in the MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) or MEG (Magneto-Encephalo-Graphy) will increase the plausibility of this concept. ++ Read: BrainHack
