Paralyzed Woman Controls Robotic Arm With Her Thoughts

A 53-year-old woman paralyzed from the neck down by a
genetic neurodegenerative condition has learned to
manipulate a robotic arm with her thoughts, researchers
report today in The Lancet. In the video above, she
uses the arm to remove plastic cones stacked on a base
and restack them one by one on another base. Surgeons
had implanted two 4x4-millimeter grids of hair-thin
electrodes in her brain to capture signals from regions
involved in planning hand and arm movements. A computer
translated those signals into commands to move the
robotic arm, which has nearly the same movement
capabilities as the real thing.
