Cyborg Rat?

One more experiment that’s taking us closer to the day where humans and machines can be integrated fully.  A cyborg rat was a guinea pig for an experimental project from Tel Aviv University showed that a lost part of the rat’s brain was revived by integrating an electronic device within the brain.  Basically, the experiment was to revive reflex blinking for the rat, and it was a success.  So what is next?

Note:  Please excuse me for using the term cyborg on a rat even though the cyborg term is supposed to be reserved for humans only.
