New York startup pioneers brain-computer connection technology

New York-based startup Synchron creates a pioneering technology that enables paralyzed patients to control computers with their brains, thanks to an 8-mm stent, the "stentrode", implanted in the brain to detect neural activity. A Melbourne resident living with ALS, shares his thoughts with AFP, by using his eyes to pinpoint letters on a screen and "clicking" on words with his mind. Zafar Faraz, Synchron Field Clinical Engineer, Rodney Gorham, Stentrode user, Tom Oxley, Synchron CEO and Dr David Putrino who oversaw the medical trial at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York give us more details.
