Nerve to electric impulses

  1. Mar 20, 2010 #1
    i know that there have been certain success in transforming nerve to elevtric impulses in both directions. it seems to be really hard to find anything on that topic.

    have we managed to implant a calculator or a dictionary, or a mobile phone in human head yet?
    can we operate machines by thought?

    what keywords are used to describe this (so that I can skan internet for this)
    there have probably been topics in this forum can someone direct me
    are there good material to read/listen/watch/

    thx in advance
