DARPA's HAPTIX program seeks to provide amputees with natural touch sensations.
Researchers have developed new software that allows powered prosthetics to automatically tune themselves, making the limbs more functionally useful.
An innovative new clinical trial seeks to explore how the brain adapts to bionic arms in children born without limbs. The study aims to improve prosthetics mastery in children.
A new study reports neurons in the somatosensory cortex respond differently to various features of a surface, creating a high dimensional representation of texture in the brain. The findings could help develop neuroprosthetics capable of identifying textures in greater detail.
A quadriplegic woman moves a robotic arm and hand in 10 dimensions with "mind control".
Polydactyly, a condition where one is born with an extra finger, has significant benefits when it comes to motor skill and control. fMRI neuroimaging reveals those with extra fingers are able to move the digits independently of other fingers. The findings could help with the development of new prosthetics that extend motor abilities.
Researchers record the neural activity of monkeys as the plan to reach in order to design better neuroprosthetics.
