  • 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.

  • Selectivity of Peripheral Neural Interfaces

    The peripheral nerve interface provides a connection between the peripheral nerve cells in our bodies and neuroprosthetic devices. It is important to consider and assess how well different types of neural interfaces selectively access specific nerve fibers. This chapter first provides a background for understanding the importance of selectivity by introducing two examples of neural prosthesis applications, and reviews the state of the art of methods for quantitatively assessing selectivity. Second, it defines four success criteria for evaluating selectivity, and provides specific results from an experimental study for comparing the selectivity performance of two intraneural peripheral electrodes (thin-film longitudinal intrafascicular electrodes (tfLIFE) and the transverse, intrafascicular multichannel electrode (TIME) interfaces) placed in the median nerve in the forelimb of pigs. It is shown that the design and placement of the electrode must be carefully considered before choosing a neural interface for a specific neural prosthesis application.

  • Power/Data Telemetry Techniques for Implants or Wearable Systems

    The need for energy efficient and multi-functional implanted or wearable devices has driven research into novel power and data telemetry techniques. For both implantable and wearable devices, specifications of the power and data telemetry need to be identified based on the underlying applications. However, few general methods and technologies have been developed to ease the constraints of these systems. For example, multiple wireless power transfer (WPT) methods. This chapter presents two design examples that discuss the implementation of a leading implanted retinal prosthesis and a wearable electronics based on body-area network (BAN). For WPT systems, the efficiency of the power transfer depends on the operating frequency, operating distance, and the dimensions of the external and implant coils. The chapter describes three methods based on the operating frequency and electromagnetic field source: inductive coupling, high frequency power transfer, and permanent magnet-based power transfer.

  • Rehabilitation Robotic Prostheses for Upper Extremity

    One of the most valuable applications for medical mechatronics is the robotic prosthesis for it not only plays a crucial role in rehabilitation but also helps much in improving life quality of patients. Recently, various rehabilitation robots have been developed. The method to reduce the complexity is first introduced in this chapter. The method is based on a robust control law and an independent joint model, and is derived in detail in this chapter. The chapter emphasizes the mechanical mechanisms of the rehabilitation robot hand and the associated power systems. It focuses on robust control law design based on the independent joint model to reduce the complexity of the design process. The chapter also introduces a method which can improve the stability of neuroprostheses, and nontarget electromyography (EMG) pattern filtering (NTPF) scheme. The results have shown that the introduced NTPF scheme is able to maintain a high EMG classification rate.

  • Controlling Prostheses Using PNS Invasive Interfaces for Amputees

    Several attempts have been made to enhance the control of highly sensorized prostheses. One of the main goals is to create a bidirectional link between the prosthesis and the nervous system. Several approaches based on noninvasive and invasive interfaces have been developed and tested. Among these, interfaces with the peripheral nervous system (PNS), especially longitudinal intrafascicular electrodes (LIFEs), seem to be a promising solution. This chapter presents the potential and the limits of these interfaces for the control of prosthetic devices. It reviews the state of the art of artificial hand control based on the use of invasive interfaces with the PNS. Decoding algorithms represent a critical step for electroneurographic (ENG)-based hand prosthesis control. Algorithms have been mainly developed for the closed-loop control of functional electrical stimulation (FES) systems. Several techniques have been developed to provide noninvasive tactile or proprioceptive information to the amputees.

  • 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.
