According to a link on MAKE:Blog, a rat neuron was able to ping a computer chip. Cyborg bodies and brain implants would seem to be one step closer!
"A rat nerve cell attached to a semiconductor chip has exchanged a signal with the chip, an
achievement that could lead to organic computers that process information like a brain, say
researchers. In the long term, the technology also could lead to prosthetic limbs that are
controlled by a person's brain and nerves."
