– It took a monkey just four attempts and another nine attempts before they learned the correct object the correct object in each test Several tests showed that the monkeys actually detecting of the object and it is not by chance. The results further evidence that it may be possible, a robotic exoskeleton recently proposed paralyzed patients could wear in order to explore and to get a feedback from the outside world to provide create, said Nicolelis. Such an exoskeleton would the the patient’s voluntary brain activity to allow the patient to move autonomously. Simultaneously sensors on over the exoskeleton generate the type of tactile feedback to the patient’s brain to the texture, shape, and temperature of objects, as well as many functions are required to identify the surface to which they are going..

This is the first time that we have a brain controlling a virtual arm that explores objects while the brain simultaneously receives electrical feedback that the fine texture of the objects observed touched by the monkeys newly acquired describe virtual hand have, Nicolelis said. Such an interaction between the brain and a virtual avatar was totally independent of the animal real body, because the animals did not move their real arms and hands, yet they have their real skin the objects the objects and identify their texture. Said, like the creation of a new sensory channel through which the brain processing information, achieve achieve absorb absorb the real body and peripheral nerves. .. Since no part of the animal real body was involved in the operation of this brain-machine-brain interface (BMBI interpret these interpret these experiments that in the future patients due to spinal cord injury severely paralyzed not only the reap the benefits of this technology, not only the regain mobility, but also their sense of touch again have Nicolelis, lead author of the study in the journal Nature wrote was published.The study published today in the the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows the first time in that endocannabinoid signaling in the intestinal plays a key role in the regulation fat intake. It had been assumed that signaling to receptors of the brain has been limited. We now know the fatty acids of producing food a signal that of the tongue that the findings producing the small intestine, which as the body’s natural marijuana-like chemical in one powerful positive feedback loop of, the fat intake driving known. .
