Researchers report their new findings could bring natural movement of prosthetic limbs closer to reality.
Researchers have developed a new method of restoring movement sensation for upper limb amputees. The researchers used small robots to vibrate muscles in order to 'turn on' movement sensations.
Researchers electronically linked the brains of pairs of rats for the first time, enabling them to communicate directly to solve simple behavioral puzzles. A further test of this work successfully linked the brains of two animals thousands of miles apart - one in Durham, N.C., and one in Natal, Brazil.
Researchers have found a way to produce realistic sensations of touch in two human amputees by directly stimulating the nervous system.
There is new hope for people suffering from memory related problems. Researchers have successfully implanted a neuroprosthetic system into the brains of epilepsy patients that uses the person's own memory patterns to enhance memory encoding and recall.
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.
An experiment aimed to investigate how the brain interprets artificial touch sensation from a finger neuroprosthesis, has revealed new information for developing way to measure brain health.
A new MRI study reveals the brain retains neural 'fingerprints' of a missing hand, decades after amputation and regardless of whether the person experiences phantom limb sensations.
A visual cortical prosthesis can restore sight by bypassing damage to the eyes and delivering visual information retrieved from a camera directly to the brain.
