U.S. Military Successfully Installs ‘brain modems’ in Animals

The U.S. military has successfully implanted and tested its first ‘brain modem’ on an animal subject.

The tiny, implanted chip, developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa), uses a tiny sensor that travels through blood vessels, lodges in the brain and records neural activity.

Neurologists injected tiny sensors into livestocks’ veins and then recorded the electrical impulses that control the animals’ movements for six months.
