    This new study which was published in which monkeys were taught to control a robotic arm by their thoughts (via electronic sensors) is amazing. I am not sure if the video is attached to the article since I saw it on one computer but not on this older one I am using. "Do you want to touch my monkey?" :laugh:

    While the hope is for advanced prosthetics, perhaps eventually clinicians could put the sensors in their heads and the heads of their patients thereby controlling them! :laugh:

    If you're really interested in this area of neuropsych i recommend this book The Mind and the Brain: Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force by Shwartz. Someone on this forum recommended it to me and it was great read.
