Mr I's next 'Topic for Discussion'

 

A team of researchers has used a brain-computer interface to reconstruct English words from neural signals recorded in the brains of nonhuman primates. The research, published in the journal Nature Communications Biology, could be a step toward developing brain implants that may help people with hearing loss, the researchers say. Join Mr I to discuss this, plus many other stories!
