CBS “60 Minutes” Segment to Profile Delaware PALS and the Innovative Brain Communication Interface Technology for ALS

“60 Minutes” on CBS this Sunday, Nov. 2 is expected to profile Dr. Scott Mackler, diagnosed with ALS in 1999, and the Delaware man’s use of brain communication interface technology.

The University of Pennsylvania researcher continues to teach and conduct his research and has spearheaded the Annual Scott Mackler 5K for the benefit of the Scott Mackler Assistive Technology Program at the Greater Philadelphia Chapter. The fundraising event provides technological equipment to people with ALS.


For background information from previous media coverage of Dr. Mackler, click on the two links below:

I watched it, I was totally amazed! My Aunt from Texas called the family and asked everyone to watch. The scientists are going in the right direction, it's only a matter of time!
