Key points from article :
128 electrode sensors tested on epilepsy patient.
Same electrode array used to monitor then control movements.
Researchers programmed the prosthesis to move the corresponding finger.
8 percent accuracy achieved without extensive user training.
The study was published in the Journal of Neural Engineering.
COMMENT: Imagine the capabilities and accuracy available with 10,000 electrodes – which should only be about a decade away with continuing exponential growth.
