Brain controls our body by using electrical impulses. To move a limb, the brain sends an electrical impulse by using nerve fiber which is connected to a particular muscle.

Scientists tap these nerve fibers, amplify and process the signals so that it can be sent to electric motors and mimic the movement of a limb.

...I think ::)...
