New on MIT Technology Review – A locked-in man has been able to communicate in sentences by thought alone
A completely paralyzed man has been able to communicate entire sentences using a device that records his brain activity. The man was able to train his mind to use the device, which was implanted in his brain, to ask for massages, soup, and beer, and to watch films with his son. It is the first time a completely locked-in person—someone who is conscious and cognitively able but completely paralyzed— has been able to communicate in this way, say the researchers behind the work.

In recent years, BCIs have enabled partially paralyzed people to control prosthetic limbs or…
