Could you fly a fighter jet with your mind?

Jan Sheuermann can and she is quadriplegic, owing to a neurodegenerative disease. As part of Darpa’s Revolutionizing Prosthetics research track Jan was first trained to control a robotic arm with her mind alone and has recently been flying a F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (the US military’s next-generation attack jet) using a flight simulator. You can read more about this in a Wired article there's also a video.
