Mind-Body Milestone!

Bodies Inert, They Moved a Robot With Their Minds

Scientists said a tiny brain implant allowed two quadriplegic people to manipulate a robotic arm with just their thoughts.

 

Just noticed this story in the NYTimes – a wonderful medical advance!  I do feel the need to point out, however, that I move my inert body parts with just my mind/thoughts every moment of the day.  How else is a person supposed to get around?

    Thanks for the post. Incredible. Isn’t there a Star Trek episode with a brain encased in a globe and that’s all that’s left of whatever superior species encountered?
