The Man with the Bionic Brain

  • "After he was stabbed, Matthew Nagle, a former high school football star, made scientific history when neurosurgeons implanted a microelectrode in his brain. Using BrainGate technology, Matt could merely think about moving a computer cursor--and it moved. He controlled the lights, manipulated his prosthetic hand, turned the TV off and on, and played video games, all just by thinking. In The Man with the Bionic Brain, Dr. Jon Mukand, Matt's research physician and a specialist in rehabilitation medicine, weaves together the stories of Matt and other survivors of stroke, spinal injuries, and brain trauma; his relationship with them; and the technology that is working miracles. Advances in biomedicine are a matter of life and death for the patients, but they are often caught in the crossfire of cultural wars over the limits of science, from animal studies to the FDA, financing, and publication. In an era of wounded veterans and an aging population, The Man with the Bionic Brain provides inspiration and insight into the possibilities of technology and explores cutting-edge human research and the attendant ethical, political, social, and financial controversies. Ultimately, the book is about people with disabilities realizing their dreams of healing their damaged bodies and regaining any measure of control"--
