Often life of the people having destroyed nervous system or paralyzed after the stroke — is life without opportunity to carry out independently even the most primitive movements and to communicate with other people.

  Scientists made a big step forward of the Israeli university of Tel Aviv in the field of the help to such patients. Scientists managed to create so-called "electro - a cerebellum" which somewhat can replace the real cerebellum of a brain which was destroyed by an illness.

   Work "electro - a cerebellum" takes place as follows: implant special electrodes which transfer impulses from the intact areas of a brain on the special chip. Then, by means of the computer program there is an interpretation of the received impulses. After that, teams which "bore" in itself these impulses, are transferred directly to nervous system.

  By means of this process, it is possible to reproduce certain movements of a body, impossible at the cerebellum destroyed by an illness. Scientists of Israel implanted "electro - a cerebellum" to a laboratory rodent to whom in advance destroyed a cerebellum. As a result the rodent which before was in a full immovability, could blink "according to the instruction" scientists.

   Researchers hope that continuing experiments, will be able to force a rodent to carry out and other movements, and in the future to implant this device to the paralyzed people to restore their ability to communicate and move.
