Interfacing with the brain

ABC Radio National’s All in the Mind has just broadcast a fantastic edition on neural prosthetics – the science of creating artificial limbs that are controlled through direct interfaces with the nervous system.

The programme looks at the some of the cutting-edge research motivated by the US Military’s need to replace lots of limbs blown off in combat.

Some fantastic stories and fascinating science. Highly recommended.
