    Braingate -TM- System Progress Detailed at American Spinal Injury Association Annual Meeting; M*Power -TM- Controller Program Outlined

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 13, 2005--Progress of the ongoing initial clinical trial of the BrainGate(TM) Neural Interface System, under development by Cyberkinetics Neurotechnology Systems, Inc. (OTCBB - CYKN), was detailed today in a presentation to the Annual Meeting of the American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA). This first formal podium presentation of BrainGate trial results was made by Dr. Steve Williams, Assistant Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine at Boston University School of Medicine and Chair of the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at Boston Medical Center. Dr. Williams is a clinical advisor to Cyberkinetics.


    Dr. Williams presented a description of the BrainGate M*Power(TM) Controller, a next generation, standardized interface which is under development and initial testing to replace the initial prototype controller which has been used in the BrainGate trial until now. The M*Power Controller is designed to allow a BrainGate system patient to control a standard wireless computer device. The new interface is also intended to be easier to use for patients and their families, so that they can access the capabilities of the system on a routine basis without reliance on a technician. These two closely linked efforts are intended to yield a BrainGate system that allows patients significant control over their environment, the ability to readily perform numerous daily activities that are currently beyond their reach, and vastly enhanced communications opportunities.

    Arrow Researchers Provide Update on Two Participants in Pilot Trial of Cyberkinetics' Brain

    Researchers Provide Update on Two Participants in Pilot Trial of Cyberkinetics' BrainGate(TM) System; Observations and Data Presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience

    Cyberkinetics Neurotechnology Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:CYKN) (Cyberkinetics) reports its latest findings with respect to the Company's BrainGate(TM) Neural Interface System in two posters today at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Washington, D.C. The poster presentations include detailed discussions of the scientific, mathematical and practical observations related to the first of two participants, each with quadriplegia, using their own thoughts and the BrainGate(TM) System (BrainGate) to control a computer in an ongoing pilot study of the system. Progress toward the development of automated software to support the BrainGate System will also be reported. The detailed information includes positive initial observations from the second participant in the BrainGate pilot trial.
    "We are extremely excited to report that preliminary observations in our second participant confirm that the BrainGate System can detect neural activity in the motor cortex and that this activity can be modulated by a person with a spinal cord injury," said John Donoghue, Ph.D., Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Cyberkinetics and Chairman of the Department of Neuroscience at Brown University. "Both participants have been able to use the BrainGate System to control a computer interface. These findings support the continued development of the BrainGate System toward our ultimate goal of creating a safe, useful, thought-controllable operating system for people with disabilities to control
