A High-Performance Neural Prosthesis Incorporating Discrete State Selection with Hidden Markov Models
Communication neural prostheses aim to restore efficient communication to people with paralysis and ALS.  These systems record neural signals from the brain and translate them, through a decoder algorithm, into control signals for moving an end effector.  In our study,... Read more
