Organic computers make some progress in rats

Discovery.com reports that recent research could lead to organic computers that are able to process information like a brain because of a rat nerve cell attached to a semiconductor chip.  Peter Fromherz, professor of biophysics at Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Germany is the coordinator for the project which worked along side researchers from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, and University of Padua, Italy.  The researchers worked alongside Infineon to help modify the chip's surface.  According to Discovery:

"If you know how single neurons couple to a chip, you can learn how whole tissue couples to a chip," said Peter Fromherz, professor of biophysics at Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Germany and coordinator of the so-called NaChip project, which also involves researchers from the University of Padua, Italy, and the University of Zurich, Switzerland.

One of the potential results from this research is that a person's brain and nerves will be able to control prosthetic limbs.
