Simultaneus prediction of four kinematic variables for a brain-machine interface using a single recurrent neural network.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Implementation of brain-machine interface neural-to-motor mapping algorithms in low-power, portable digital signal processors (DSPs) requires efficient use of model resources especially when predicting signals that show interdependencies. We show here that a single recurrent neural network can simultaneously predict hand position and velocity from the same ensemble of cells using a minimalist topology. Analysis of the trained topology showed that the model learns to concurrently represent multiple kinematic parameters in a single state variable. We further assess the expressive power of the state variables for both large and small topologies.
