Dr. Miguel Nicolelis
Miguel Nicolelis at Duke University is pioneering brain-machine interfaces. In his book, Beyond Boundaries: The New Neuroscience of Connecting Brains with Machines---and How It Will Change Our Lives, he puts his groundbreaking work into an historical context. I discussed his book briefly in BSP 78, but I have now posted an in-depth interview. The focus of our conversation is on why his work challenges longstanding assumptions about the primacy of the single neuron in brain function.
