  • Large Margin Multi-channel Analog-to-Digital Conversion with Applications to Neural Prosthesis

    A key challenge in designing analog-to-digital converters for cortically implanted prosthesis is to sense and process high-dimensional neural signals recorded by the micro-electrode arrays. In this paper, we describe a novel architecture for analog-to-digital (A/D) conversion that combines ΣΔ conversion with spatial de-correlation within a single module. The architecture called multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) ΣΔ is based on a min-max gradient descent optimization of a regularized linear cost function that naturally lends to an A/D formulation. Using an online formulation, the architecture can adapt to slow variations in cross-channel correlations, observed due to relative motion of the microelectrodes with respect to the signal sources. Experimental results with real recorded multi-channel neural data demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm in alleviating cross-channel redundancy across electrodes and performing data-compression directly at the A/D converter.

  • Advances in Cognitive Neural Prosthesis: Recognition of Neural Data with an Information-Theoretic Objective

    We give an overview of recent advances in cognitive-based neural prostheses, and point out the major differences with respect to commonly used motor-based brain-machine interfaces. While encouraging results in neuroprosthetic research have demonstrated the proof of concept, the development of practical neural prostheses is still in the phase of infancy. To address complex issues arising in the development of practical neural prostheses we review several related studies ranging from the identification of new cognitive variables to the development of novel signal processing tools.In the second part of this chapter, we discuss an information-theoretic approach to the extraction of low-dimensional features from high-dimensional neural data. We argue that this approach may be better suited for certain neuroprosthetic applications than the traditionally used features. An extensive analysis of electrical recordings from the human brain demonstrates that processing data in this manner yields more informative features than off-the-shelf techniques such as linear discriminant analysis. Finally, we show that the feature extraction is not only a useful dimensionality reduction technique, but also that the recognition of neural data may improve in the feature domain.

  • Talking iPads and the Partial Promise of Voice: What Is Voice?

    Voice is a universally relevant concept yet there is no shared consensus of its meaning, particularly among those who study media and communication. This polysemy is especially palpable in the three introductory quotes. Each parent articulates different understandings of voice in relation to their child's use of the iPad and Proloquo2Go. To Donna, an AAC device is a voice, and a voice is a prosthesis and bodily extension.
