The application of implant technology for cybernetic systems.
The response to stimulation improved considerably during the trial, suggesting that the subject learned to process the incoming information more effectively, and may allow recipients to have abilities they would otherwise not possess.
Prediction of Parkinson's disease tremor onset using artificial neural networks
The initial results using an artificial neural network to predict the onset of Parkinson's Disease tremors in a human subject using data obtained from implanted deep brain electrodes are presented.
Case Studies to Demonstrate the Range of Applications of the Southampton Hand Assessment Procedure
Four examples of the SHAP use are described: before and after a surgical procedure, to observe the impact of an injury, use with prostheses, and during recovery following a fracture.

This paper reports in detail on a short case study tracking four people persistently for six weeks using mobile handsets, the GPS locations of these people have been mined to reveal places of interest and to create simple profiles.
Prediction of Parkinson's Disease tremor Onset Using a Radial Basis Function Neural Network Based on Particle Swarm Optimization
The approach is to use a radial basis function neural network (RBFNN) based on particle swarm optimization (PSO) and principal component analysis (PCA) with Local Field Potential data recorded via the stimulation electrodes to predict activity related to tremor onset.
Invasive neural prosthesis for neural signal detection and nerve stimulation
The aim of the study was to assess the efficacy, compatibility, and long term operability of the neural implant in allowing the subject to perceive feedback stimulation and for neural activity to be detected and processed such that the subject could interact with remote technologies.
Identifying tremor-related characteristics of basal ganglia nuclei during movement in the Parkinsonian patient.
An analysis of security and privacy issues relating to RFID enabled ePassports
An interdisciplinary approach to the key security and privacy issues arising from the use of ePassports is taken and how European data protection legislation must be respected and what additional security measures must be integrated in order to safeguard the privacy of the EU ePassport holder is analyzed.
Human ICT Implants: From Restorative Application to Human Enhancement
- M. Gasson
This chapter makes the case that with the desire of technology enthusiasts and self-experimenters to push boundaries, increasing familiarity driving cultural and societal changes, advances in medical technology and the inevitable drift of medical technology to non-medical application, this is clearly just the beginning for human enhancement using ICT implants.
