Neural Implants Without Electronics: A Proof-of-Concept Study on a Human Skin Model
Objective: Chronic neural implants require energy and signal supply. The objective of this work was to evaluate a multichannel transcutaneous coupling approach in an ex vivo split-concept study, which minimizes the invasiveness of such an implant by externalizing the processing... Read more

Vibrotactile Stimulation Promotes Embodiment of an Alien Hand in Amputees With Phantom Sensations
Abstract Tactile feedback is essential to intuitive control and to promote the sense of self-attribution of a prosthetic limb. Recent findings showed that amputees can be tricked to experience this embodiment, when synchronous and modality-matched stimuli are delivered to biological afferent structures and to an... Read more
