Neural prostheses for reaching


Scherberger, H (2009). Neural prostheses for reaching. In: Squire, L. Encyclopedia of Neuroscience. London: Academic Elsevier, 213-220.

Abstract

Advancements in the understanding of the primate motor system and improvements in recording technology have revitalized the idea of a neural prosthesis for restoring motor deficits in paralyzed patients. Several research groups have demonstrated the feasibility of such a brain–computer interface (BCI) by decoding reach movements online in monkeys and human patients. BCIs with implanted electrodes seem to have superior decoding capabilities compared to noninvasive methods, but improvements in electrode biocompatibility and the exploration of neural signals other than spiking activity are needed to make this new technology safe and robust for clinical applications.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
