In this interview, TechEmergence talks to Dr. Beata Jarosiewicz from Brown’s BrainGate project about the science of making sense of the brain’s inner electrical activity, and how the brain might be used to control a variety of devices if calibrated correctly. 

Researchers at BrainGate have given paralyzed patients the ability to move robotic arms and check emails with their thoughts alone – thanks to experimental neural implants in their motor cortex. Dr. Beata Jarosiewicz has been with BrainGate project for years, with a specific focus on interpreting neurological signals and turning them into actionable outputs.
