Cybernetic Nerves

Postby Philosopherboi » Thu Dec 04, 2008 5:01 pm

I was thinking cybernetic nerves might be something that should be looked into, to replace failed nerves in an affected parts of the body. I mean why should someone settle for having parts of their bodies disabled when cybernetic nerves could be put in to replace those nerves.

Anyways what do you think about the potential of cybernetic nerves?

Before I can create a further opinion we need to know what type of nerves. Body parts have two types, sensory nerves and motor nerves.

Why not both, since without both a body part will not work properly. I mean have you ever tried to walk when your foot is asleep? I know you don't walk anymore but when you did walk.

Replacement of nerves at the site is not possible, let alone replacement of a spinal cord. The reason is it would be like trying to require trillions of tiny wires even smaller than a nanometer.
