Brain Activity Increases in Techno Hookup

FutureTracker| A new study posits an interesting relationship between humans and robots or a comuter interface. Researchers at the University of Washington studied the brain’s surface while study participants used imagined movements to control a cursor.

Comprehending the fact that the cursor reponded to human thoughts prompted brain signals to become stronger than typical in daily activities.

The potential for use with stroke victims is of great interest and also as a significantly more efficient and less humanly frustrating way of making humans — victims of war and terrorism come to mind — better able to control a computer interface or a prosthetic limb. via Science Daily
