Thought control of prosthetic limbs via brain-controlled interfaces will be tested and developed with funding from DARPA. Human subjects will test neural interface systems used to control prosthetic limbs.
A new study reports amputees often feel as though their prosthetic limb is part of their body.
Engineers work to design prosthetic arm that allows amputees to feel what they touch. Engineering researchers at four U.S. universities...
Researchers have created an artificial nervous system that may give prosthetics and robots reflexes and the ability to sense touch. The system is sensitive enough to identify letters in the Braille alphabet.
Reconnecting muscle pairs during surgery following amputation provides patients more sensory feedback from the limb, researchers report.
Researchers have developed a camera system that mimics the bee eye. The artificial bee eyes allow the researchers to take images that are believed to be similar to the bee's viewpoint.
Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have adapted brain-computer interfaces to listen to regions of the brain that control speech.
