Monkey Mind Control
20 February 2014 3:30 pm
A mind-boggling new study published this week in Nature Communications describes how researchers have found a way for one monkey to control the movements of another with its mind. Using two rhesus macaques, scientists implanted a chip into the brain of the “master” monkey that could convert its brain activity and send electrical impulses into the spine of a sedated primate, The Scientist reports. In one experiment, the master macaque was able to move a cursor by controlling a joystick in the hand of the sedated primate. The researchers believe the findings hold hope for paralyzed humans.
