On ‘Psychology Behind the Headlines’, host Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest MHTN Chief Medical Officer Dr. Dan Bober discuss about the brain implant that’s changing lives. This technology has the potential to help people paralyzed by ALS communicate again – just by thinking!

Decoding thoughts into words

This implant directly reads brain activity related to speech and handwriting, transforming it into text on a screen.

Immense potential for ALS patients

For those who’ve lost the ability to communicate, this technology could mean regaining independence and connection.

Wider applications possible

Dr. Bober notes that even people without ALS could benefit from a more accurate version of “talk to text”-type technology.
