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 some of our group’s recent investigations into human-specific motor neurophysiology focused on understanding neural population dynamics, and the design and translational to a pilot clinical trial focused on helping establish clinical viability.
