USA Today

A fully paralyzed man and woman have demonstrated the ability to hold a ball or grab a cup of coffee using their brain signals to control a robotic arm, researchers report Wednesday. The demonstrations, reported in the journal Nature, mark yet another significant step in efforts by researchers to connect severely paralyzed patients to prosthetic devices that they can maneuver with their own thoughts.
