Neural prosthesis

Dr. Thamburaj

Neural signals from the brain that correspond with a basic limb movement, such as grasping an object, are recorded with a special electrode array in the brain. Neuroscientists use these recordings to develop an algorithm that processes the neural signals and predicts patterns of muscle activity. The processed signals are sent in less than 40 milliseconds to a modified functional electrical stimulation (FES) system in the arm, which in turn causes the relevant muscles to contract. Read more
