not strictly training related but this is so cool: https://www.sciencenews.org/article/stimulating-spinal-cord-helps-more-paralyzed-people-walk

Paralysis is becoming less permanent — at least for some.

There’s now more evidence that stimulating the spinal cord can restore voluntary movement in paralyzed patients who haven’t recovered after other treatments. After five months of training coupled with targeted stimulation of nerve cells in the spinal cord, three people who had a severe spinal cord injury regained the ability to walk with varying degrees of support, researchers report online October 31 in Nature.

incidentally my mom used to edit that publication, science news, when i was in high school.

A couple of days ago I was thinking about the same thing. About how damaged spinal cord where the brain sends electrical impulses. How cool it would be if it could be replicated or stimulated .

Def an interesting topic
