With a renewed interest from companies to advance brain computer interfaces, Dennis DeGray is a reminder that the field has been making progress for a long time now. DeGray has been working with BrainGate, a consortium of researchers from Brown and other institutions that are working to give incapacitated humans the ability to engage with the outside world through the power of thought. In recent work done at Brown, David Borton led a team that restored the walking motion of a monkey by implanting electrodes and a wireless transmitter in its motor cortex.
