Krishna Shenoy discusses the future of neural prosthetics at TEDxStanford

Krishna Shenoy, PhD, directs Stanford's Neural Prosthetic Systems Lab, where he and colleagues conduct research to better understand how the brain controls movement and design medical systems to assist those with movement disabilities. In this recently posted talk from May's TedxStanford, Shenoy describes various neural prosthetic systems and how they work and the potential for such devices to help people with severe motor disabilities.

Watch the talk to learn how advances in neuroscience and neuro-engineering could yield, in the not-too-distant future, neural implants that not only allow a person to move a prosthetic arm but also possess a sense of touch.
