    This is pretty interesting stuff.

    Couldn't help but thinking of my favorite chimp, when I read the story. Maybe he's not a puppet. Maybe he's just an early prototype. Might explain some of his ambulatory gaffes...loose electrodes and all...
    I have no problem at all with being proved wrong. Especially when being proved wrong leaves the world a better place, than being proved right...

      Just who was your favorite chimp? Yourself?

      On a more serious note, it is indeed a marvelous sight to see endless implications of this latest technological leap in the biotechnology.

      I wonder is Christopher Reeve reading this article right now? I would wager that he will immediately want to volunteer for the medical experiments, which will be started next year if FDA approves the experiments. Then we call can get back to what Reeve does the best: flying like a Superman.

        what do you think of siamese twins connected by the side so they each have a single arm.
        or people without arms
        or people without legs
        or snakes without a tail
        or elephants without their long nose
        or

            There are many things they don't explain in these articles. Which thoughts do you think to create the right signals? How do they know what part of the brain and what kind of electrical activity is associated with those thoughts?

              Saw a more detailed article. I don't recall it talking about the choice of location or the length of time this took place over, but what happened was that while the monkey was playing with the joystick a computer was recording the brain activity. And as I think was mentioned in this article they first unhooked the joystick but let the monkey keep playing with it and eventually the monkey realized that it didn't need the stick any more.
              It may be that at some time in the dim future of the race the need for war will vanish: but that time is yet ages distant. As yet no nation can hold its place in the world, or can do any work really worth doing, unless it stands ready to guard its right with an armed hand." - President Teddy Roosevelt

                Hope they hook that thing up right, it may be tragic to try to step forward, but, whack yourself in the face instead.
