A prosthetic arm that “feels” - NEW!!!

A prosthetic arm that “feels” - NEW!!!

Scientists are trying to make a prosthesis that can execute moves using the nervous system. Currently the best prosthesis can perform six and its built at Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
If they use directly the brain’s nervous system at a very high resolution, then moves prostheses could simulate almost perfectly the reality, but this works is not possible, because it is very difficult to intercept outgoing signals from the brain, present technology don’t allow this. Hundreds of microscopic wires that records from individual neurons that emits tiny signals must be placed for this operation to succede and its to hard to insert them into human body.
