As unbelievable as it sounds, this is really true as posted in a Health News Article at Reuters.com.

Here’s an excerpt from the article about what this represents:

“This is the dawn of major neurotechnology where the ability to take signals out of the brain has taken a big step forward. We have the ability to put signals into the brain but getting signals out is a real challenge. I think this represents a landmark event,” said Professor John Donoghue of Brown University in Rhode Island and the chief scientific officer of Cyberkinetics.
