History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

At lower tech levels, neurotech uses 'hardwired' techniques, which involve surgical implantation of interface sockets on the sophont, and Organo-Metallic links spliced directly into nerve tissue, with all its associated hazards.

The latest S'mrii neurotech uses advanced 'non-invasive' techniques, based on the Becklin-Sikia'mr Effect, an obscure quantum mechanical effect which allows neural signals to be induced very precisely from a distance of several centimetres. The neural inductor apparatus (or neurocoupler) may be worn outside the body (usually in the form of a 'helmet' or 'crown') and the need for surgery is eliminated.

Human neurocouplers are believed to exist, but are not yet commercially available.
