Scientists train a monkey to control a robotic arm using only its thoughts.

It’s a case of mind over matter for monkeys in the USA, who’ve been trained to use a bionic arm with their thoughts alone.

The astonishing feat was accomplished by scientists at the University of Pittsburgh, who trained two monkeys to eat pieces of marshmallow and fruit with the robotic arm.

It works by using electrodes to monitor patterns in the monkey’s brain. The technology is groundbreaking and could enable doctors in the future to make sophisticated prosthetic limbs for amputees.
