A hierarchy of neuromechanical and robotic models of antenna-based wall following in cockroaches

Jusuk Lee; Owen Y. Loh; Noah J. Cowan 2007 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, 2007

It may come as no surprise that a simple "planar unicycle" (or "skate") model can successfully follow a wall at high speed under PD-control. What would be surprising is that such a simple control mechanism may underly the control of one of nature's fastest terrestrial insects, the American cockroach. For this paper, we implemented the same controller (up to scale) ...


Digital Emulation of Pulse Frequency Modulation for Neuroprosthetic Sensory Feedback

Jake J. Abbott; Sanford G. Meek IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering, 2007

Pulse frequency modulation (PFM) is a method of encoding information where the instantaneous frequency of a pulse train carries the signal's information. PFM is of particular interest to those working towards interfacing prosthetic devices directly with the human nervous system. In this paper, we consider the effects of directly implementing PFM with a digital microprocessor. We consider three digital PFM ...

  • Rewiring the Nervous System, Without Wires

    In the healthy nervous system, the development of intention and motor execution is a dynamic and highly distributed process that originates in the brain. Nervous system disorders have long???term health, economic, and social consequences. This chapter discusses the potential impact that advances in wireless neurotechnology may provide persons with neuromotor disease and insult, but also to explores fundamental basic research avenues enabled by leveraging wireless telemetry in human and nonhuman brain science. Considerable investment and decades of intensive research have brought great insight into how movement and proprioception or sensation are accomplished in upper limb processing pathways. This wireless technology enabled acquisition of full spectrum neuronal population dynamics in untethered freely moving monkeys. Neurotechnology and stimulation protocols are at the early stages of development. Further, by combining epidural electrical stimulation (EES) with cortical stimulation of the sensory areas, one envisions a true internally closed???loop sensorimotor prosthetic system.

  • Muscle Coordination, Motor Synergies, and Primitives from Surface EMG

    To investigate neural control strategies, muscle activity must be measured during motor behavior. Recent advances in the investigation of the neural control of movement have led to a re-examination of the mechanisms of sensorimotor integration in the central nervous system (CNS) and in the spinal circuitry in particular. This chapter considers different approaches used to uncover the modular organization of the motor output in human behaviors such as responding to postural perturbations, reaching with the arm, and locomotion, as well as its plasticity and flexibility in movement disorders. It also investigates the strategies that the CNS employs to coordinate the activation of many muscles start from electromyographic (EMG) signals recorded simultaneously from many muscles. Different muscle synergies models are used to decompose the EMG envelopes using appropriate factorization algorithms. The chapter further considers the spatiotemporal organization of the activity patterns of leg and trunk muscles during locomotion.

    Neural interfaces are one of the most exciting emerging technologies to impact bioengineering and neuroscience because they enable an alternate communication channel linking directly the nervous system with man-made devices. This book reveals the essential engineering principles and signal processing tools for deriving control commands from bioelectric signals in large ensembles of neurons. The topics featured include analysis techniques for determining neural representation, modeling in motor systems, computing with neural spikes, and hardware implementation of neural interfaces. Beginning with an exploration of the historical developments that have led to the decoding of information from neural interfaces, this book compares the theory and performance of new neural engineering approaches for BMIs.
