Noninvasive spinal stimulation and a robotic exoskeleton enable a completely paralyzed man to move his legs voluntarily, researchers report.
A new study reports animal behavior can be reversed by manipulating neural communication.
Researchers have developed a new soft robotic hand with numerous embedded fiber optic sensors and a new type of stretchable optical sensor. They believe incorporating the stretchable optical material into the hand could help provide more feedback.
According to a new study, a tissue-engineered colon derived from human stem cells can develop nerves required to function effectively.
New researcher suggests engineered neural networks have the ability to replace and repair lost axonal tracks in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease and those with brain injuries.
Clinical trials are underway for 'robotic legs' that can help those with movement disorders to regain mobility.
Researchers are developing new technologies that can stimulate and sense neurons in the human brain non-invasively.
A new study reports researchers have successfully used brain stimulation to provide touch feedback and direct movement. The findings could benefit those with spinal cord injury to regain movement.
