Neurocalculators can be crafted at a Fabrication bench once the Neural computation research project has been completed. The required techprint can be obtained either by trade or completing quests for the Empire. They require 15 Plasteel, 4 Advanced components, 26,000 ticks (7.22 mins) of work, and a Crafting skill of 8.

The neurocalculator's main benefits are the 20% bonus research speed bonus and the mood buff that transhumanists receive. Due to this, it should only be installed on colonists that conduct research or use the ground-penetrating or long-range mineral scanner. It has no effect on hacking speed.
The brain shock effect can either be a negative or a positive. A melee pawn that is sensitive to EMP is significantly less useful as a melee blocker or way to lock down mechanoids, and significantly more likely to die. Meanwhile, a painstopped pawn or a slave that is sensitive to EMP has a way to reliably down them with no risk of death.
It is advised only colonists with high medical skills install the part as a failed surgery can lead to severe brain scarring and a near inoperable colonist post-surgery.
