DescriptionResearchers from the University of Melbourne have developed a new device that can be implanted into a blood vessel next to the brain's motor cortex to record high-quality neural signals. These types of signals have been successfully translated into movement commands for bionic prosthetics and exoskeletons in pre-clinical trials, and hypothetically, this sort of neural activity could be translated into commands for a variety of computer systems.
