    Sex? I was talking about the tongue. Didn't you ever used to stick your tongue on a 9 volt battery and feel the cool tingle?

    I think it will work on anything they can physically hotwire and send a current through. Seen them do this to rats and they were able to walk again.

An electronic stimulater that stimulates nerves and muscles in the spine, and this little device has actually enabled 6 paralyzed men to be able to move again. Hopefully, with some more research and development, they can help many paralyzed people.

    Sounds promising.

    Obviously a breakthrough and a long ways off from being made practical. Lets hope they can continue to improve it

    This is great news and I am hopeful this will advance and be offered up to many patients. I have several friends with paralysis from sports related accidents that could truly benefit from this.

    I dunno with the rats it was pretty dramatic recovery. Stem cells or something like that in the broken spots and manually sending the jolts to the right parts of the legs right when they needed to be jolted. With a machine moving the rats hind quarters. They put cheese ahead of it so its brain was always thinking about walking forward. I bet after they develope a core rebuild they can even start and stop the walking based on paying attention to the treateds impulses and rebuilding finer motor skills.
