Non-Implant Human Mind Control Works

from the one-step-closer dept

These are all small steps, but it’s impressive to see how much the research on using brain power to move things is proceeding. There are a few different efforts under way, some using monkeys to control things and others using humans. The latest advance is research showing how humans can control a computer cursor with their minds — without having anything implanted. We’ve obviously still quite a long way from much more advanced brain power control over items, but it appears this is one area where the research does keep advancing.
