The research team published a paper in Frontiers in Neurorobotics describing a new brain-machine interface and a pair of modular prostheses. This system provides a direct link between the brain and a computer that decodes neural signals and uses them to perform tasks ranging from moving the cursor on the screen to operating a robotic prosthesis. In fact, the paralyzed man could control the robotic arms with his mind.
Scientists have already done a lot of work, but they will not stop here and continue to improve the system. They want the prosthesis to provide sensory feedback transmitted directly to a person’s brain, enabling them to perform certain tasks without requiring constant visual feedback.
