DARPA selects two universities to assist with its RAM program, which aims to develop a wireless, implantable neuroprosthetic to help those with TBI to overcome memory deficits.
Researchers develop a highly accurate representation of how neurons behave when performing complex movements.
Researchers use computer technology to help understand how the brain circuitry controls movement.
A new method of treating phantom limb pain which utilizes several technologies is providing successful.
Researchers record the neural activity of monkeys as the plan to reach in order to design better neuroprosthetics.
Ancient Peruvian healers practiced trepanation, a surgical procedure which involved removing a section of the cranial vault with a hand drill, over 1000 years ago in order to treat a variety of ailments, a new study reports.
Researchers restored behavior in a rat model of TBI using a neuroprosthetic device.
Advances in robotics have made it possible to create artificial legs that can duplicate the natural movement of human legs. The research could help improve the mobility of lower-limb amputees.
Using a brain machine interface, monkeys learn to control the movement of two virtual arms, a new study reports.
Researchers develop a new blueprint for touch-sensitive prosthetic limbs. The findings could someday convey real-time sensory information for amputees.
According to a new study, people can be tricked into feeling that an avatar, a generated image of a human figure, is their own body.
Researchers show that when humans use brain-computer interface technology, the brain behaves much like it does when completing simple motor skills such as waving a hand. This technology could help improve the daily lives of those who are paralyzed or lost specific abilities due to neurodegenerative diseases.
Artificial sensors in a prosthetic hand allows rhesus macaques to sense tactile stimulus, according to a new study. A similar device could be used in human trials within the next year, researchers hope.
According to new research, the human brain can adapt to treat a relevant prosthetic as a substitute for a person's non-working body part, and not as an extension to their immobile limb.
Building a robotic bat wing, researchers have uncovered flight secrets of real bats: the function of ligaments, the elasticity of skin, the structural support of musculature, skeletal flexibility, upstroke and downstroke.
