Designing a brain- machine interface for neuroprosthetic control

Book Section

There are roughly four major subassemblies of a brain derived neuroprosthetic control device: (1) the electrodes subassembly, (2) signal conditioning subassembly, (3) signal acquisition subassembly, and (4) transmitter subassemblies (Table 6.1). Notably absent from these subassemblies is a device to generate the command signal. This issue will be addressed in Chapter 8. Each of these subassemblies has been studied in detail and some of the major advances are presented below. However, each of these steps requires major technological advances in order to produce a device for clinical use and we will attempt to point out some of the possible solutions.
