Dr. Justin Sanchez explains to host Dr. Larry Kaskel the latest research regarding neuroprosthetics. These prosthetics directly interface and decode brain communications. The greatest development arises in utilizing smart prosthetics called "brain chips" that learn with the patient overtime, and someday may be used routinely to help paralyzed patients control prosthetic limbs with their thoughts. Dr. Sanchez outlines the underlying mechanisms of these devices and the current research within humans. Tune in to hear how these brain-machine interfaces are being used to control prosthetics, and the potential applications to cure diseases such as epilepsy, addiction and Alzheimer's.
