The Neural Prosthetics Translational Laboratory

The Neural Prosthetics Translational Laboratory (NPTL) conducts research aimed at providing clinically useful neural prostheses for people with paralysis. Using tools and technologies developed in the Neural Prosthetics Systems Laboratory (NPSL), our eventual goal is to extract signals recorded from surgically implanted brain electrodes to provide accurate, high speed control of computer cursors and assistive technologies such as robotic arms. Our current projects are focused on improving neurally-directed computer cursor control and interface design; analyzing and utilizing possible control signals from electrocorticography (ECoG) in patients with epilepsy; evaluating stability of control signals from intracortical electrodes; and the development of wireless systems which will enable the next generation of neural prosthetic devices.
