Paragraph 1

A man who cannot move his or hands has used his thoughts to write on a computer . The man has been paralyzed from the down for almost a decade. Scientists from Stanford University in the USA implanted two tiny into the man's brain. The scientists gave this two names - "brain-to-text" and "mindwriting". The man wants to remain , so scientists have called him T5. He became paralyzed after suffering a spinal cord ten years ago. The implants have allowed T5 to use his to write. He can write 90 characters (about 18 words) per . This is five words slower than the average person writing a message on a smartphone.
