A non-invasive brain-machine interface via independent control of individual motor units
TLDR
A BMI controlled by individual motor units non-invasively recorded from the biceps brachii is demonstrated, highlighting a largely unexplored level of flexibility of the sensorimotor system and showing that this can be exploited to create a versatile, skillfully-controllablenon-invasive BMI that has great potential to both provide translational benefit and augment motor functions.

Flexible neural control of motor units
TLDR
Neuropixels probe recordings revealed that, consistent with the requirements of fully flexible control, the cortical population response displays a surprisingly large number of degrees of freedom. Expand
Skilled independent control of individual motor units via a non-invasive neuromuscular–machine interface
TLDR
This work hypothesized that a non-invasive neuromuscular–machine interface providing real-time neurofeedback of individual motor units within a muscle could enable independent motor unit control to an extent suitable for high-performance BMI applications. Expand
The Phenomenon of Exquisite Motor Control in Tic Disorders and its Pathophysiological Implications
TLDR
The intriguing clinical phenomenon that people with tic disorders are often able to control specific muscle contractions as part of their tic behaviors to a degree that most humans typically cannot is described. Expand
Human-Machine Integration and the Evolution of Neuroprostheses
TLDR
The technology that has enabled the most advanced neuroprostheses in use today are explored and ongoing challenges facing the field are highlighted. Expand
The effect of wrist posture on extrinsic finger muscle activity during single joint movements
TLDR
EMG variations with wrist posture were most prominent for index finger muscles, while the EMG activity of all finger extensor muscles were modulated in a similar way across all digits, which may contribute to designing control algorithms for myoelectric prosthetic hands in the future. Expand
The effect of wrist posture on extrinsic finger muscle activity during single joint movements
TLDR
A pair of generalized classifiers are developed that show that finger muscle EMG can be used to predict wrist posture, and may impact the design of biomimetic control algorithms for myoelectric prosthetic hands. Expand
Pilot study on the use of audio feedback for sEMG-based brain-machine-body interface
TLDR
The preliminary findings show that two pilot subjects could achieve accuracies of up to 70% despite not seeing the cursor moving on the screen, and when the audio feedback was removed, performance accuracies dropped significantly and times-to-target increased. Expand
