ScienceHack - monkey brain moving robotic arm
I stumbled across this site with interesting science videos from a number of areas (biology, psychology, robotics, etc.). They are mainly at a superficial 'gee whiz' level, but quite engaging. Here is the Monkey moving a robotic arm. This is work from the Pittsburgh group, described in Nature, which promises to lead to effective therapy for human patients paralyzed by strokes, spinal-cord injuries and degenerative neuromuscular disease.
