ABSTRACT
The article reports on the results of the study published in "The Lancet" which revealed that scientists successfully mimicked the brain's signals past the spinal-cord injury (SCI) of a research patient to help start repeated voluntary movements. It states that the study used epidural electrical stimulation and physical therapy on SCI patient Rob Summers. Researcher Susan Harkema says that researchers will try to duplicate Summers' regain of functionality in four more patients.
