    I suppose it's worth trying, but there are soooo many issues, one mentioned in the article. Rejection is something they will definitely have to contend with. The article mentioned dendrite issues. What about axonal? I don't think the chip has an axon attached to complete signal transmission. One could go on and on with the mountain of issues, but I won't. I guess everything and anything needs to be considered, or does it? As one with a spinal cord injury, I sometimes grow weary of it all. But we do need hope. I just feel more and more, not in my life time.
