My mate has an implant which controls nerve signals from a particular nerve cluster in his back, that was damaged as a result of a complication arising from a herniated disc in his spine. Essentially, when the nerve cluster sends pain signals, the implant sends counter signals so that the rest of the nervous system and the brain do not receive the pain signal. It essentially cancels out the signal.
The cyborgs have been among us since the pace maker really, and things are only going to get more interesting in that regard, as time wears on!
