A prosthetic arm that is attached to the bone and controlled by electrodes implanted in nerves and muscles can operate more precisely than conventional prosthetic limbs. Researchers improved the neuroprosthetic hand by integrating tactile sensory feedback, so the patient can "feel" items.

Using EEG and brain computer interface technology, researchers have created a robotic arm that can be controlled without brain implants.
Researchers have developed a new prosthetic arm that stimulates the nerves in the amputated limb, allowing the patient to feel the sense of touch.
University of Exeter researchers report people with prosthetic arms are not able to experience the 'size-weight' illusion as strongly as those without missing limbs.
Following targeted motor and sensory reinnervation, a procedure that reroutes residual limb nerves to intact muscles and skin in amputees, the brain remaps both motor and sensory pathways. Additionally, researchers note, TMSR may help counteract poorly adapted cortical plasticity following amputation.
Researchers believe the adolescent brain may be more sensitive to the effects of alcohol as it is still developing and less robust than adults' brains.
Amputees are able to regain sense of touch and 'feel' with their prosthetic hands, thanks to new technological advances.
Researchers develop a robotic prosthesis which can be controlled by implanted neuromuscular interfaces.
