This Brain Implant Could Change Lives

It sounds like science fiction: a device that can reconnect a paralyzed person’s brain to his or her body.
But that’s exactly what the experimental NeuroLife system does. Developed by Battelle and Ohio State University, NeuroLife uses a brain implant, an algorithm and an electrode sleeve to give paralysis patients back control of their limbs. For Ian Burkhart, NeuroLife’s first test subject, the implications could be life-changing.
