Not exactly ALS research but the technology could be used to help PALS communicate.

If Honda can make a arm / robot move by harnessing brain waves how difficult would it be to use brain waves to help in speach and other difficulties PALS have.

One step at a time.

I've read a few fictional books by Dale Brown and in them he has pilots flying aircraft with brain waves. I thought it was just science fiction. Life imitates art once again.

Associated press made the link to spinal cord injuries.

TOKYO - In a step toward linking a person's thoughts to machines, Japanese automaker Honda said it has developed a technology that uses brain signals to control a robot's very simple moves.

In the future, the technology that Honda Motor Co. developed with ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories could be used to replace keyboards or cell phones, researchers said Wednesday. It also could have applications in helping people with spinal cord injuries, they said.
