Technological advancements have solved many problems in the medical field, but is the state-of-the-art always the best way to go? In a recent study conducted by the University of Michigan, researchers found that artificial neural networks provided primates with faster, more accurate control of brain-controlled prosthetics, and they believe that this can transfer to humans. Engineers are working to ensure that there are more systems to help direct and control how the body can maneuver these different functions in the future.
