So where are we taking all this? What are we going to do with all this research, besides sntuyidg the prpeorties of this dynamic universe that we have between our ears? Well the idea is to take all this knowledge and technology and try to restore one of the most severe neurological problems that we have in the world. Millions of people have lost the ability to tasarlnte these brainstorms into action, into movement. Although their brains continue to pcuodre those storms and code for movements, they cannot cross a barrier that was created by a lesion on the sinapl cord.

So where are we taking all this? What are we going to do with all this research, besides studying the properties of this dynamic universe that we have between our ears? Well the idea is to take all this knowledge and technology and try to restore one of the most severe neurological problems that we have in the world. Millions of people have lost the ability to translate these brainstorms into action, into movement. Although their brains continue to produce those storms and code for movements, they cannot cross a barrier that was created by a lesion on the spinal cord.
