There have been multiple experiments conducted to implant prosthetics into the brain.  Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have improved upon these prosthetics and have had success.  The prosthetics that are being implanted into the brain “are capable of transmitting multiple brain signals simultaneously, delivering drugs, and wirelessly recording brain functions.”  These prosthetics are valuable because they have the potential to allow disabled individuals the ability to regain control over their bodies.
