Image Description:  

"Handler" nanorobots install "Thinker" nanocomputer modules in a damaged brain. Note the dead brain cells. Such devices could one day replace brain cells damaged by illnesses such as Alzheimers, mad cow disease, or accidents, or could be used to enhance brain capacity. The nanorobots can operate autonomously or through teleoperation.
