According to scientists at UC Berkeley the human brain may be capable of redeveloping motor memory of a prosthetic limb.

The research adds to already existing knowledge that the brain can control computers and even robotics with thought alone. The researchers observed that a mental map of a solution could be developed in order to do a task with a high degree of function.

"When your own body performs tasks repeatedly, the movements become almost automatic. The profound part of our study is that this is all happening with something that is not part of one's own body. We have demonstrated that the brain is able to form a motor memory to control a disembodied device in a way that mirror's how it control's it's own body" stated the lead researcher Jose Carmena.
