Translational Engineering in Neurorehabilitation 2012 (TEN 2012)
“Decoding the neural drive to muscles for advanced assistive technologies”
In this project, we propose the development of advanced electrode systems for in-vivo electrophysiological recordings from nerves and muscles in humans and new computational methods/models for extracting functionally significant information on human movement from these recordings. The highly innovative focus is that of providing the link between the cellular mechanisms and the behavior of the whole motor system in the intact human, i.e. to build the bridge between the neural and functional understanding of movement. On the basis of these new technologies, we aim at answering open questions in movement neuroscience and using novel principles for man-machine interaction. Specific applications in man-machine interaction are related to neurorehabilitation technologies, such as functional electrical stimulation, myoelectric and peripheral neural prostheses.
