Researchers Train Minds to Move Matter

Learning to move a computer cursor or robotic arm with nothing but thoughts can be no different from learning how to play tennis or ride a bicycle, according to a new study of how brains and machines interact.


John Blanchard
GETTING THE SIGNAL In experiments, signals from the brain’s motor cortex were translated by a “decoder” into deliberate movements of a computer cursor .



The research, which was carried out in monkeys but is expected to apply to humans, involves a fundamental redesign of brain-machine experiments.
In previous studies, the computer interfaces that translate thoughts into movements are given a new set of instructions each day — akin to waking up each morning with a new arm that you have to figure out how to use all over again.
In the new experiments, monkeys learned how to move a computer cursor with their thoughts using just one set of instructions and an unusually small number of brain cells that deliver instructions for performing movements the same way each day.

WOW.
This is TRULY awesome. I am really excited about this. If you thin touchscreens are the future of the computer..... I got news for you.
