The Human-Human Interface

Neural Body Mod

Personal Infrastructure

The latest in body mod – interfaces from the brain to the computer.

“Neurologist Leigh Hochberg of Massachusetts General Hospital and his colleagues–including sensor co-inventor John Donoghue of Brown University–placed the tiny sensor containing 100 electrodes, each thinner than a human hair, onto the surface of Nagle’s motor cortex, the part of the brain that governs movement. The sensor registered electrical signals from nearby neurons and transmitted them through gold wires to a titanium base on Nagle’s skull. Cables connected this base to a set of computers, processors and monitors.”
