Neural Interfaces

Nerve cuffAPT Center research and development projects are related to new ways of interfacing with the central nervous system will focus primarily on methods of extracting signals from the cortex for controlling assistive devices or detecting and diagnosing dysfunctional cortical activity, as well as microsystems designed to promote cortical rewiring and facilitate adaptive neural plasticity. In the peripheral nervous system, we will continue to optimize the design of high density flat nerve interface electrodes (FINEs) for selectively activating the human femoral and sciatic nerves in motor system neuroprostheses for standing and walking, as well as the sensory nerves of the brachial plexus to provide natural sensory feedback to upper extremity amputees.
