Brain implants help paralysed man feel limbs
October 20, 2016
Researchers in the United States of America have successfully carried out an experiment to help a paralyzed man feel his limbs. The first ever experiment of its kind was carried out to implant very small devices in the parts of the brain that feel emotions.

He was able to feel a sensation on his arm. Doctors and surgeons are sure that with more study the implants can be made better.
