Reconnecting muscle pairs during surgery following amputation provides patients more sensory feedback from the limb, researchers report.
Sensory signals transmitted from a prosthetic leg to the nervous system helps amputees perceive their prosthetic limb as part of their body. The new neurofeedback helps them perceive the new limb as significantly lighter.

A closed-loop system combining AI, robotics, and BCI technology allows a quadriplegic man to control movements to cut food and feed himself.
Researchers have developed a new model that represents the planning of movement from seeing an object to grasping it.
The brain processes motor commands, not just through fine muscle contractions, but also via higher-level motor areas that provide a blueprint for performing more complex motor functions, such as grasping, no matter if the toes or fingers are used.
Combining machine learning with neuroprosthetic technology allowed a patient with paralysis to learn to control a computer cursor by utilizing brain activity without extensive daily retraining.
A new wireless intracortical brain-computer interface neuroprosthesis is capable of gathering and transmitting accurate neural signals, using a tenth of the power required by current wire-enabled systems.
Researchers reduced the power requirements of neural interfaces while improving their accuracy by tuning into a subset of brain waves.
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.
