Having identified a new, simpler way to study neural activity, researchers believe they are on track to creating a compact, low power and potentially wireless brain sensor that could make thought-controlled prosthetic limbs ubiquitous.
Researchers have developed a novel hybrid machine learning approach to muscle gesture recognition in prosthetic arms.
Using magnetic beads implanted into muscle tissue within the amputated residuum of animals, researchers have created a more precise way to control prosthetic limbs.
A 3D printed hand which uses a computer interface to learn can replicate hand movements.
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.
Proprioception feedback of a robotic arm helped improve the performance of monkeys using brain machine interfaces to control a computer cursor. When the monkeys were fit with exoskeletons that provided arm movements synchronized with the cursor movement, control of the cursor improved by 40%.
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.
A new study reports amputees often feel as though their prosthetic limb is part of their body.
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.
