Brown neuroscience and engineering professor John Donoghue spoke to an audience of about 100 people May 4 at a veterans breakfast convened annually by U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).

The senator invited Donoghue, who is also a researcher at the Providence Veterans Affairs Medical Center to talk about the PVAMC's new Center for Neurorestoration and Neurotechnology, which he directs, and the latest research on BrainGate, an investigational brain-computer interface currently in clinical trials.

Donoghue, who also directs the Brown Institute for Brain Science, took questions from the audience at the Rhode Island National Guard Schofield Armory in Cranston.
