I have recently watched some anime, (yes, anime, probably a huge cause to lots of questions asked on the internet), and it got me thinking. We can intercept nerve signals throughout the body, but could we interpret their task, as to whether they are meant to contract or relax a muscle, and their destination, as to which muscle they are meant to travel a signal to.
Extra Inspiration: I have seen an article by Chris Brooker about the theory of intercepting optical nerves to benefit augmented reality, so it got me thinking, what if we could intercept all nerves in one go, the brain, but I realised, that's a stupid idea, they travel to the brain all over, so the next best location was the Central Nervous System (The Spine).
On top of Anime super inspiration, and some articles which helped further my theory, I thought more and more about how nerves travel around the body as impulses, so I theorised maybe they use different currents or charges to travel to different parts of a body, which brings me to my conclusion, is there anyone who would be willing to carry this experiment out? And then give me the results? If this is true we may be able to make a huge breakthrough in the virtual department, even if incorrect it can still be a starting stone for a new hypothesis.
However this entirely bases on the idea that all nerves start from one point on the cns, however the start to this would be to gain a test subject and patch a circuit into a nerve. on the circuit would be an ammeter and a voltmeter, and then have the subject move the muscles connected to the nerve.
The second step would be to find a lone point in the cns where all nerves touch or cross paths to identify the Sweet Spot (( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) I named it myself) and differentiate different nerves for different purposes.
Keep in mind this would be no small discovery, this would help engineer a better future in the virtual department, however this is only a small part to this, imagine being able to truly see or hear without the help of heavy machinery, or be able to walk with actual legs again, or be able to play catch with family again as this would engineer the greatest part to prosthetic engineering where we could actually move lots of different gears as if we contracted or relaxed a muscle.
If my hypothesis is completely off as my science is incorrect than please let me know. I currently do not have the facilities to go further into this as I am still in High School ((̿▀̿ ̿Ĺ̯̿̿▀̿ ̿)̄), and am busy with studies, but I hope I am correct and thus would have contributed to science which can help thousands of people everyday.
Please contribute to this topic even if it is criticising it.
