Description
At Neuralink's Show and Tell event, neuroengineer Joey O'Doherty discusses the company's research into spinal cord injury applications. He says "you've already heard about how we can use the N1 link as a communication prosthesis to help someone with spinal cord injury control a computer or a phone, but it can also be used to reanimate the body", by implanting electrodes into the spinal cord using the R1 robot.
