Neuromod is a tool found Talos-1 that lets Morgan to upgrade their abilities in Prey (2017). They can be found throughout the Talos-1 station.

OverviewEdit

Neuromods are created from the Typhon. They change the structure of the patient's brain, manipulating it to grant effects ranging from learning a foreign language, learning to play an instrument, or even lengthening the user's lifespan. Needles inject a serum into the the neurons in the brain that are sensitive to light. Then, the neuromod uses lasers and light to map the patient's brain, and then extrapolates the changes required to grant the effects desired. Neuromods are a luxury on Earth, and only the wealthy can afford to have them installed, spending large amounts of cash in order to live a few more years.[1]

ManufacturingEdit

The process to manufacture Neuromods is gruesome to say the least. First, individuals who are supposedly death row inmates are locked inside of a containment cell, where a mimic is then released. The Mimic kills and absorbs the human, thereby producing a few more Mimics. The Mimics are then lured into a Material Recycler and processed into raw exotic material, which can then be plugged into a fabricator to produce the necessary Neuromods.

Skill TreesEdit

The abilities one can learn using Neuromods are divided into two broad categories: Human and Alien. These categories are in turn divided into three subcategories each: Scientist, Engineer and Security for human; and Energy, Morph and Telepathy for Alien.
