Researchers developing brain-controlled prosthetic devices
Scientists at the UCSF-UC Berkeley Center for Neural Engineering and Prostheses are among many teams nationwide working on brain-machine interfaces, promising bionic limbs controlled by users' thoughts. "We're still very far from decoding thoughts," says Berkeley bioengineer Amy Orsborn of the CNEP team. "These devices are not for mind control. They're for providing new means of control for sensory processes."
