Helen Czerski explores cutting edge therapies allowing the brain to control limbs remotely. Cathy Hutchinson, paralysed for over 15 years, recently steered a robotic arm towards herself and was able to drink her morning coffee. Dr. Leigh Hochberg explains how a sensor implanted in Cathy’s brain ‘reads’ her thoughts and controls an external device.
