Enhanced Brain-machine Interface Taps into Additional Senses (image) Society for Neuroscience Share Print E-Mail Caption During the experiment, monkeys used their brain signals to move a computer cursor (red circle) to randomly placed targets (squares). When visual and proprioceptive feedback were included, the monkey's hand was moved by a robotic exoskeleton. The additional sensory information resulted in the cursor hitting the target faster and more directly. Credit Courtesy, with permission: Hatsopoulos, et al. The Journal of Neuroscience 2010.
