Deep Pinsker and James-Stein Neural Networks for Decoding Motor Intentions from Limited Data

Author(s): Marko Angjelichinoski, Mohammadreza Soltani, John Choi, Bijan Pesaran, Vahid Tarokh
Deep Pinsker and James-Stein Neural Networks for Decoding Motor Intentions from Limited Data 150 150 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Non-parametric regression has been shown to be useful in extracting relevant features from Local Field Potential (LFP) signals for decoding motor intentions. Yet, in many instances, brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) rely…

Systematic Variation of Prosthetic Foot Spring Affects Center-of-Mass Mechanics and Metabolic Cost During Walking

Author(s): Karl E. Zelik, Steven H. Collins, Peter G. Adamczyk, Ava D. Segal, Glenn K. Klute, David C. Morgenroth, Michael E. Hahn, Michael S. Orendurff, Joseph M. Czerniecki, Arthur D. Kuo
Systematic Variation of Prosthetic Foot Spring Affects Center-of-Mass Mechanics and Metabolic Cost During Walking 1264 855 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Lower-limb amputees expend more energy to walk than non-amputees and have an elevated risk of secondary disabilities. Insufficient push-off by the prosthetic foot may be a contributing factor. We aimed…
