Bionic man doctor

Dr. John Donoghue and his team have created a bionic piece of the nervous system. It allows paralyzed people to turn thought into action. By thinking of moving, they can make a robotic arm move for them. Dr. Donoghue is a world renowned neuroscientist at Brown University in the U.S. He was in town to give a talk at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Shawn Apel caught up with him.
