From the IEEE 125th Anniversary Media Event: Embracing Human Technology Interactions, Dr. Miguel Nicolelis gives a presentation on Brain-Machine Interface Technology. Dr. Nicolelis explains an experiment that he was a part of that was able to make a robotic arm controlled by the brain. With the brain-machine interface technology that Dr. Nicolelis is talking about, humans with any physical limitations will someday be able to function at a much more normal level.
This program contains a presentation that discusses how Dr. Nicolelis' brain-machine interface work, humans with any physical limitations (e.g. paralysis, Parkinson's sufferers, etc.) will someday be able to function at a much more normal level.
