Scientists have created artificial neurons that could potentially be implanted into patients to overcome paralysis, and restore failing brain circuits.


The bionic neurons can receive electrical signals from healthy nerve cells, and process them in a natural way, before sending fresh signals on to other neurons, or to muscles and organs elsewhere in the body.
