Submission + - St. Louis Youth Plays Videogame With Brain Signals

SkyFire360 writes: A team of ECoG (ElectroCorticography) researchers from Washington University in St. Louis have successfully wired a young man's brain up to a computer and began reading the neurological firings in his brain. After analyzing the action potentials created when a neuron fires, they were able to get two-dimensional control of a cursor. Taking the research one step further, they decided to connect an old Atari 2600 to the signal processing computer to see if the young man could control the videogame system.
