Robot arm controlled by quadriplegic's intentions

Robot arm controlled by quadriplegic's intentions

Californian researchers have linked a robot arm to the brain of a quadriplegic man, giving him smooth control over the arm.

The electrodes are not in the motor cortex or attached to muscle nerves, but are in a part of the brain associated with planning muscle activity: the posterior parietal…
