The purpose of this study was to develop an animal model to evaluate the efficacy of a brain machine interface (BMI) to control a neuroprosthesis intended to restore hand function via functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS). We have implemented the system in a single primate, whose limb could be temporarily paralyzed by a reversible peripheral nerve block Recordings from the primary motor cortex were obtained from a 100-electrode array in the intact monkey, and used to predict the activity… CONTINUE READING
