Researchers have used a neural implant to recapture a lost decision-making process in monkeys-demonstrating that a neural prosthetic can recover cognitive function in a primate brain. The results suggest that neural implants could one day be used to recover specific brain functions in patients with brain injuries or localized brain disease.
