Scientist Helps Man Regain Speech with a Brain Implant

UCSF post-doctoral engineer Dr. David Moses and his team have developed a brain implant that helped a man speak after 15 years. CNET’s Andy Altman reports the extraordinary feat in this video. Neuroprosthesis, the brain implant’s name, could decipher the brain activities of the man that was unable to speak and was paralyzed for years due to a brain stem stroke. The implant has 128 sensors or electrodes that the scientists attached to the man’s brain through surgery. These sensors picked up neural prompts in the brain’s cortex region where the vocal tract control is present. Those brain waves were successfully translated into speech. Want to find out more? Watch the video now.
