Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology which aims to create a direct link between the human brain and computers has been in the news this week as Synchron, an Australian medical device company, announced that it has implanted its first BCI device into the brain of a U.S. patient (in this case one with ALS, a neurodegenerative disease that affects the ability to move and speak).
