The electrodes are placed in areas of the brain that are responsible for just a memory by which we remember the event, time, place, and lists of objects, as well as in the area responsible for spatial orientation.
The researchers found that the direction of electric discharges in certain cell groups makes more memory available. The researchers were able not only to record the signals and transmit them to the brain. They believe that this opens the way for widespread adoption of the technology.

However, relations with the South Korean intelligence service has been limited, the maximum level of co-operation takes place with the intelligence of the Ministry of Defense and the National Security Command.

Question : Does the presence of the international coalition significantly change the balance of power in favor of Moscow” That is by unleashing Russian arms for direct military action in the Middle East?
26/09/2015. STOP PRESS. RUSSIA CAN BRING PEACE TO SYRIA
A bold Russian intervention in Syria was not just a sudden blow to Washington. It can become critical strategic moment in the Middle East, especially if this intervention will help to stop the Syrian civil war. No matter how it ended, Russia now has changed the dynamics of the Syrian crisis and opened up new possibilities.
At first glance, Vladimir Putin is determined to rescue the Assad regime. Military intervention has been due for some time so to stabilize this regime, but it is suggested that ultimately Moscow risks repeating the Afghan catastrophe when jihadists took on the Russian military might. But skeptics should bear in mind that from the point of view of Vladimir Putin, which he clearly stated in his speech at the United Nations, the intervention of an alternative could be a disappointing defeat of Assad, which will >>> give new powers to Islamic extremism. And that Russia is in a better position than any other nation to stop the bloodshed in Syria. <<<
No matter how it ended, Russia now has changed the dynamics of the Syrian crisis and opened up new possibilities. The crisis is now linked not only with Iran, which has vehemently defended Assad and also struggled with the Islamic State in Iraq.
Acting as the main support of Assad and forming an axis against the Islamic State (consisting of Iran, Iraq and Syria), Russia is at the center of a regional policy fight against Islamic extremism. The main issue is current and future role of Russia in the Middle East and if not across the world, rather than the effects of the Iranian nuclear deal.
The Russian intervention is also a very direct challenge to Turkey and the Persian Gulf monarchies, which support the Syrian opposition. In 2012, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah demonstrated its dissatisfaction with Russia’s support for Assad’s regime, ‘hanging up’ during the middle of a telephone conversation with President Dmitry Medvedev. But it more than appears that Russia is unconcderned about the reaction of Turkey and the Arab world in its recent military efforts. After the conclusion of the nuclear deal dissatisfied with Washington’s Arab monarchies found it necessary to establish links with Moscow. Unlike the U.S, Russia has no need to choose between Iran and its Arab enemies. Russia has managed to sustain closeness with Tehran, while strengthening ties with the Gulf monarchies.
The United States from the outset really did not want to interfere in the Syrian catastrophe. The support they have given to the opposition in Syria, is altogether ineffective, as attempts to find a diplomatic solution.>>> Unlike the US, either as a result, Russia today is widely considered the central force in the Syrian endgame. <<<
Secretary of State Kerry renewed efforts to find a diplomatic solution for Syria. In the four years of the Civil War the United States rejected calls to arm the rebels to establish a no-fly zone for aircraft and hold the red line on the issue of use of chemical weapons. Impact on the Civil War was minimal. In contrast, Russia is arming Assad’s army and now has taken on the task of protecting the regime. All interested parties understood that the key to ending the war is Moscow.
Iran’s supreme leader – while negotiations with the United States will not agree on the nuclear deal. And the Obama administration, speaking about Iran’s regional role primarily meant containment of the country and not cooperating. Implementing a nuclear deal cast a shadow over all the discussions about Syria, and even if Washington will be able to achieve a breakthrough in relations with Tehran, the US still faces opposition from Israel and the Gulf monarchies Congress.
Moscow has more opportunities to push Iran, Turkey and the Gulf monarchies to compromise. Last month, US Secretary of State Kerry invited Qatar, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia, Al-Adil Dzhubeyra, to discuss the Syrian issue. But Russia is seeking more direct bilateral negotiations. The list of high-ranking visitors in recent months, Moscow is quite long, for example; Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif (Javad Zarif), commander of the special unit Quds of the Revolutionary Guards, General Qasem Soleimani, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Muhammad bin Naif, Deputy Crown Prince Salman ibn Muhammad, the UAE Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. When Muhammad ibn Salman returned home from Moscow, Putin arranged for him to meet with the chief of intelligence, Assad Ali Mamluk, which was held in Jeddah. While Putin strengthens the defense of Assad, >>>Russia is in talks with major regional players.<<<
This diplomatic campaign has already yielded tangible results. After a visit to Moscow last week, Erdogan changed his position and agreed that Assad could be part of a political decision by the end of the civil war. Apparently, Erdogan and the Gulf monarchies became clear that Putin will not allow the fall of Assad. These countries are also at risk of confrontation with Russia, if they continue to support the opponents of Assad. Turkey and Israel also do not want long-term Russian military presence in their backyard. Israel can not strike Hezbollah and Iran’s goals when ‘she’ pleases, and Turkey will not be able to meet the challenges of the Kurds as freely as it has done until now.
The strategy will create a way out of the current impasse in Syria, – good news not only for the neighboring countries of Syria, but also in Europe, where the influx of war-weary refugees poses massive problems in the humanitarian sphere and in the sphere of security. But it also raises new questions about the call that the US and Russia throw into the world order. Critics of the Obama administration’s fear that his Russian show of force could secure a superiority in the Middle East, and it will give her a new energy to accelerate action in other parts of the world. These critics believe that Russia fills the vacuum that arises because of the indifference and incapacity of the US.
The Russian military has launched airstrikes against Islamic State militant targets in Syria. The move was approved after a request from President Bashar Assad to Vladimir Putin.
30/08/2015 US Secretary of State Kerry. Quote:
“If we do not find ways to come together to fight the Islamic State and Russia will fight them alone, guess what will happen. Russia will become a target. Russia sees – who knows – people with MANPADS, planes falling from the sky. They begin to blacken. Together with Assad they become a new magnet for jihadists. ”
Response from Russia : “Unfortunately, the US secretary of state does not explain how the coordination with the United States will help keep our aircraft from MANPADS of the Islamic State. Because we can not put forward the hypothesis that de facto Kerry threatens the supply of weapons IG that the United States may exercise in the case of Russia’s refusal to act on the plan of the Americans. In addition, the head of the State Department predicts that Russia could “become a new magnet for jihadists,” that is threatened by a series of terrorist acts on the territory of our country, and this statement can be interpreted differently?”
“These scenarios United States has already implemented in Afghanistan in the 80s (the creation of al Qaeda and supporting radical Islamists in general, which they, including armed MANPADS “Stinger” for war with the Soviet Union), and in Russia in the 90s (the support of radical Islamists who incite war in the North Caucasus, and to carry out attacks in the rest of Russia). Now they declare their readiness to combine the two into a single script.”
“The transition to direct threats suggests that the placement of pieces on the board is clearly not for the United States because they, to put it mildly, are nervous and frustrated.”
