Researchers report neurons in the PPC encode entire hand shapes. The findings are helping with the development of neuroprosthetic devices.
Researchers have developed flexible, optogenetic implants that can activate and block pain in the body before the signals reach the brain.
Researchers are one step closer to developing a prosthetic arm that can recreate a sense of touch through a direct brain interface.
Researchers have harnessed nature and biology to create a robotic finger that looks, feels and functions like a real finger.
A new neuroprosthesis has been developed to bypass a damaged section of the hippocampus and provide a neighboring area with correctly translated memory. The device could help people with Alzheimer's disease or those who have problems with memory following brain injury.
Researchers have developed new software that allows powered prosthetics to automatically tune themselves, making the limbs more functionally useful.
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, researchers have successfully used polymer nanotubes to create a neuron-like network.
New discoveries about neuroplasticity following vision loss could improve patient susceptibility to sensory prosthetics.
