Brain implants help paralysed man to walk again

A group of doctors have succeeded in implanting an electronic brain in a paralyzed patient.

Foreign media reported that the person was able to walk again after this brain transplant.

The operation was performed on a 40-year-old Dutchman named Gert-Jan Oskam.

He was paralyzed in a bicycle accident 12 years ago.

Neuroscientists at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland have created this electronic brain.

Researchers say this digital connection develops new neural connections between the brain and spinal cord.
