6.1. BrainGate Neural Interface System
BrainGate is a brain implant system developed by the bio-tech company Cyberkinetics in 2003 in conjunction with the Department of Neuroscience at Brown University. A computer chip, which is implanted into the brain, monitors brain activity in the patient and converts the intention of the user into computer commands.
This brief newsclip shows the brain computer interface with implanted electrodes and a trial of its use with a quadriplegic man.
