• Researchers working for the European Projects EXTEND (H2020-ICT-23-2017-779982) and NeuroTREMOR (FP7-ICT-2011-7-287739) developed a novel thin-film multichannel electrode that provides a compact multichannel interface for recording electromyogram and delivering electrical stimulation in applications such as neuroprostheses for tremor suppression and closed-loop myoelectric prostheses. More information here:
  • Researchers from Northwestern University evaluated the type and quantity of neural information needed to drive a brain machine interface (BMI) in rats to restore voluntary gait after spinal cord injury (SCI). Results suggest that multiunit spiking activity is sufficient to drive cortically-controlled functional electrical stimulation (FES). More information at:
