Duke scientists are experimenting with a brain implant that could give you superhero-like senses.
While brain implants have long been able to manipulate brain currents, this is the first one that can also monitor them.
Electrodes embedded deep in this man's brain are just the beginning of his metal internal organs.
A new breakthrough could lead to a whole array of injectable electronics.
It's a milestone for the medical community, yet you wouldn't have to be a neurologist to understand it. That's because this brain-cell-scanning microchip can study human gray matter at unheard of resolutions, yet pretty much does all the science-y work itself.
