Diane Rehm and her guest Miguel Nicolelis (founder of the Duke University Center for Bioengineering) discuss the new neuroscience of connecting brains with machines – and how it will change our lives.
This episode covers neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis’ work with primates that has uncovered a new and controversial method for capturing brain function. It is paving the way for a cure for Parkinson’s disease, new ways of treating paralysis, and using brain waves to control everything from transportation to manufacturing.
