Brain implant allows paralyzed man to communicate, says study
28 July 2022

Researchers say a man who is paralyzed by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) was able to communicate with them, thanks to brain implants that can register the man's neural signals.

 

According to the researchers, the study is the first evidence of being able to communicate with someone who is in a completely "locked-in" state, and unable to speak or move their eyes.

 

"For his family and for everybody on the team, it was very emotional as well as satisfying that we enabled someone to express themselves and to express their wishes and desires," Ujwal Chaudhary, one of the researchers, formerly from the University of Tübingen in Germany, told As It Happens guest host Gillian Findlay. "This was, I would say, very fulfilling as a researcher and also as a human being."
