Moving and Feeling Using Only Brain
Thanks to our friends at Your Therapy Source for the heads up on this item!
This is some crazy research from Duke University having monkeys use brain control only to move a virtual arm over the correct target based on sensory feedback (vibration). The researchers are hopeful that in the future this type of technology will not only help individuals with spinal cord injuries to move arms and hands and to walk again but even to feel and touch again.
