Thinking the World Into Motion

Wow! Cool stuff going on at Brown. From their Jan/Feb 2005 alumni magazine comes Thinking the World into Motion. From the summary on their web site: "Last June, Matthew Nagle, a quadriplegic, became the first human to receive a tiny brain implant that allows him to control a computer by using only his thoughts. Thanks to Nagle and a team of Brown scientists, the device he’s pioneering may one day make it possible for paralyzed people to move their limbs again." I say again, "wow!" (and thanks to Bonnie for the reference).
