Technology that creates a brain-computer interface (BCI) already exists, and could soon allow people to control robots and computers with thought alone. So how does BCI work, and what can it do? The brain uses specialised cells called neurons to carry messages. Whenever we think, move, feel or remember something, small electrical signals are carried from neuron to neuron.
