"Cortical basis of handwriting in humans for neural interfaces”

Millions of people worldwide experience neurological diseases and injuries leading to paralysis, which is often so severe that people are unable to feed themselves or to communicate. Intra-cortical brain-computer interfaces (iBCIs) aim to restore some of this lost function by converting neural activity from the brain into control signals for prosthetic devices. I will describe one of our group’s recent investigations into human-specific motor neurophysiology focused on understanding neural population dynamics of handwriting, and the design and translational to a pilot clinical trial focused on helping establish clinical viability.
