Arm and hand movements have been restored in paralyzed primates when researchers ‘zapped’ their spinal cord. Rather than designing new, sophisticated equipment, electrical stimulation was applied to surviving nerves in severely damaged backbones, which improved motor control in the monkeys. In the experiments, macaques with partial arm paralysis learned to reach, grasp, and pull a […]
