Description
Steve Holbert was paralyzed in a dirt bike accident in late 2009. His hope is to completely recover from his spinal cord injury and one day walk again. That's why he's agreed to participate in the research of Jose Luis "Pepe" Contreras-Vidal, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Houston's Cullen College of Engineering and director of the Laboratory for Non-invasive Brain-Machine Interface Systems. Contreras-Vidal is working on a brain-machine interface (BMI) that would allow patients like Holbert to control prosthetic limbs through their own thoughts.
