Neuroscience researchers restore leg movement in primates

A Neural Bridge:

An international team of scientists, including BIBS faculty member David Borton, has used a wireless “brain-spinal interface” to bypass spinal cord injuries in a pair of rhesus macaques, restoring intentional walking movement to a temporarily paralyzed leg. The research is a step toward the development of a system that might help in rehabilitating people who have suffered spinal cord injuries.
