Brain Implant Restores Sense Of Touch To Paralyzed Man : Shots - Health News : NPR

Quote:
Twelve years ago, a car wreck took away Nathan Copeland's ability to control his hands or sense what his fingers were touching.

A few months ago, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center gave Copeland a new way to reach out and feel the world around him. It's a mind-controlled robotic arm that has pressure sensors in each fingertip that send signals directly to Copeland's brain.

Brain implants allow paralysed monkeys to walk

Quote:
For more than a decade, neuroscientist Grégoire Courtine has been flying every few months from his lab at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne to another lab in Beijing, China, where he conducts research on monkeys with the aim of treating spinal-cord injuries.

The commute is exhausting — on occasion he has even flown to Beijing, done experiments, and returned the same night. But it is worth it, says Courtine, because working with monkeys in China is less burdened by regulation than it is in Europe and the United States. And this week, he and his team report the results of experiments in Beijing, in which a wireless brain implant — that stimulates electrodes in the leg by recreating signals recorded from the brain — has enabled monkeys with spinal-cord injuries to walk.

New Record: Paralyzed Man Uses Brain Implant to Type Eight Words Per Minute

Quote:
“What did you enjoy the most about your trip to the Grand Canyon?” the Stanford researchers asked.

In response, a cursor floated across a computer screen displaying a keyboard and confidently picked out one letter at a time. The woman controlling the cursor didn’t have a mouse under her hand, though. She’s paralyzed due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also called Lou Gehrig’s disease) and can’t move her hands. Instead, she steered the cursor using a chip implanted in her brain.

“I enjoyed the beauty,” she typed.

From Mind Control to Curing Brain Diseases, a Neuroscience Revolution Is Coming

Quote:
A cyborgian improvement to my memory and ability to focus? The ability to save my memories on a disk like a word file? Immortality for my experiences? Anything is possible.

DARPA Is Hacking The Human Brain To ‘Upload’ Skills Directly

Quote:
The DARPA Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT) program is exploring ways to speed up skill acquisition by activating synaptic plasticity. If the program succeeds, downloadable learning that happens in a flash may be the result.

This thread has a lot of intriguing material such as articles on cybernetic prosthetics, electromagnetic brain disruption technology, mind control programs, mind control technology, ESP and brain to brain communication technology, mind controlled cars, mind controlled drones, neurological weapons, DARPA, mind hacking prevention, memory manipulation, restoring paralyzed senses. A lot of great articles, going to take me some time to browse through.

Is Mind Control Tech Finally on Its Way?

Quote:
SpaceX and Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, revealed, last month, to The Wall Street Journal, that he was working on a new company, Neuralink. This new project plans to merge artificial intelligence and cerebral stimulation techniques aiming to improve brain capacities. Musk’s new adventure draws a huge change in the way we communicate and convey our ideas, that we could probably compare it to the impact that the development of language had to our society.

It veers into nonsense when they assume brain control is the same as mind control.
There is nothing that can control the will, thought cannot be controlled or stolen, its utter nonsense.
I'm reading a lot of ignorant belief regarding the science. Science has accomplished NO advances into mind.
