A micromachined silicon technology is being developed for the purpose of sensing information from the stumps of amputated mammalian peripheral nerves. Information on long-term biocompatibility, anatomy, and physiology related to the structural design of this sensor is presented. Pertinent materials, fabrication, and surgical implantation issues are discussed. Noise, signal amplitude, and receptive field are considered as the prime determinants of the design of an appropriate electrode contact… CONTINUE READING
