Organ Regeneration

http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/health/med-tech/4337088

^Interesting article detailing future directions for tissue and organ regeneration. This is pertinent to our discussion of the cyborg, senescence, and sensory enhancement.

 

Essentially, we should be able to engineer enhanced-functioning organs and tissues (biological, though possibly chimeric). This would be accomplished through over-expression and knockout gene constructs, or transgenic strain synthesis.

 

It seems as though the cyborg (and possibly the neosentient) could have biological (though possibly transgenic) roots.
