Rats and robots are nothing new. Those of you that are veterans of the mailing list may remember Steve posting about rats controlling robots.
It seems they've taken this a step further. They no longer need the rat. Just the rat brain. Researches pulled a similar stunt with moths early last year.
I, however, find this much more disturbing. It's a huge leap to go from insect to mammal. It raises the possibility that the first sentient machine may be manufactured from human brains! More specifically, your brains!
