I look ahead to the day when artificial neuron 'bridges' can span the gap across injuries to reconnect the intact upper spinal cord and the intact lower spinal cord to restore complete functionality. As electronics become miniaturized, it should be possible to have a 'sensor' on one side of the injury and a 'repeater' on the other side of the injury. Electronics are fast enough that the delays in transmission should not be perceptable.

For years paralysis resulting directly from injuries to the spinal cord has been attributed to problems in the neural system and, as such, the focus for the treatment of such paralysis has been focused more on the neurons than anywhere else. Maybe the reason why there has been very little progress in this direction of treatment (no one has ever really recovered from 'permanent paralysis' by following this particular approach) is because it is the wrong way as I hope these brilliant researchers will demonstrate soon enough.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
