For the First Time in History Brain-Machine Interfaces Achieve Two-Way Communication

A prosthetic limb can recover the lost motor function partially when it is controlled by brain activity directly. This is made possible by decoding neuronal activity that is recorded with electrodes and then translating these into robotic movements. Due to the absence of sensory feedback from the artificial limb, these systems do however suffer from limited precision.
