Das techno-zerebrale Subjekt. Zur Symbiose von Mensch und Maschine in den Neurowissenschaften

Abgeleitet aus einer Analyse neurowissenschaftlicher Praktiken und Techniken der Anpassung von Mensch/Gehirn und Maschine/Computer zeichnet Melike Sahinol die Entstehung »techno-zerebraler Subjekte« nach: Anhand von Interviews mit renommierten Neurowissenschaftler_innen und Darstellungen neurowissenschaftlich-klinischer Anwendungsprojekte, die mit Hilfe von Brain Machine Interfaces (BMI) an der Heilung von Schlaganfall- und ALS-Patient_innen arbeiten, zeigt sie, wie die wechselseitige Anpassung von Patient_in und Maschine zur bio-technischen Gestalt des Cyborg führt und Patient_innen als Subjekte konstituiert werden, die einer cerebro-zentristischen Vorstellung entsprechen.
