University of Rochester neuroscientists were able to implant information into monkeys’ brains, research that could lead to brain repairs for stroke victims, according to a study published in the journal Neuron.
“You could potentially bypass the damaged areas and deliver stimulation to the premotor cortex,” study co-author Kevin A. Mazurek told The New York Times. . “That could be a way to bridge parts of the brain that can no longer communicate.”
“When the computer says, ‘You’re seeing the red light,’ you could say, ‘Oh, I know what that means — I’m supposed to put my foot on the brake,'” Dr. Schieber explained to the Times. “You take information from one good part of the brain and inject it into a downstream area that tells you what to do.”
