Microelectrode Spinal Implants to Control Paralyzed Limb Function

Researchers from the University of Alberta in Canada have used novel platinum/iridium microelectrodes to create a functional map of the lower spinal cord in monkeys, demonstrating how different segments of the spinal cord control lower limb movement. This development may one day be used for rehabilitation of patients with paralysis.
