Brain Gate was developed by the bio-tech company named as Cyber kinetics in the year 2003 in conjunction with the Department of Neuroscience at the Brown University. The device was designed to help those who have lost control of their limbs or other any bodily functions. The computer chip, which is implanted into the brain, monitors the entire brain activity of the patient and converts the intention of the user into all computer commands. Currently the chip uses 100 hair-thin electrodes that 'hear' neurons firing in specific areas of the brain. For example, the area that controls the arm movement. The activities are translated into electrically charged signals and are then sent and decoded using a program, thus moving the arm. According to the Cyber kinetics' website, two patients have been implanted with this Brain Gate system.
