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."
