Monkey's brain controls a sedated 'avatar'

Oh boy - Avatar the movie just took a step closer to being real...

Master monkey's brain controls sedated 'avatar'

The brain of one monkey has been used to control the movements of another, "avatar", monkey, US scientists report.

Brain scans read the master monkey's mind and were used to electrically stimulate the avatar's spinal cord, resulting in controlled movement.

The team hope the method can be refined to allow paralysed people to regain control of their own body.

You feel helping crippled people walk again is a waste of time? I'd beg to differ.
