| LOS ANGELES, Feb. 7 - Nanotechnology, biotechnology, electronics
and
| brain research are converging into a new field of science vital to
the
| nation's security and economic clout.
|
| Or so say influential research agenda-setters like the National
Science
| Foundation, along with a loose-knit group of government, academic
and
| industry researchers who are trying to accelerate the convergence
process.
|
| "Leading scientists are stepping forward and saying, `We don't have

| Experts in cognition - which includes the way the brain processes
the
| sensory data it receives from the nervous system and from proteins
or
| other compounds in the blood - have also been invited into the
fold.
| Their inclusion has focused the NBIC on technology applications
that
| could improve human health or even advance human performance in
areas
| like memory, mood control or the ability to communicate with
machines.
