A “cyber-cerebral system” is a distinguishable set of elements of the digital infosphere on the one hand and the brain of living beings on the other hand, which form a transspheral functional unit in that they are interconnected in a way that enables interaction aimed at the fulfilment of a function, a sense or a purpose.

he term “cyber-cerebral system” was coined as part of the terminology of the “Digital Era Framework”. As a frame of reference, the “Digital Era Framework” is based in particular on a systematization of the way in which information manifests itself. Four spheres of information manifestation can be distinguished: The infosphere, which consists of the analog infosphere and the digital infosphere, the cognisphere and the entisphere.

The materiality of the brain belongs to the biosphere and hence to the entisphere. In the context of a functional approach, however, an attribution to the cognisphere must be made. The term “cyber-cerebral system” refers in particular to systems in which there is a direct connection between the brain and digital media in the digital infosphere.
