Rapid control and feedback rates enhance neuroprosthetic control.

Related Articles Rapid control and feedback rates enhance neuroprosthetic control. Nat Commun. 2017 01 06;8:13825 Authors: Shanechi MM, Orsborn AL, Moorman HG, Gowda S, Dangi S, Carmena JM Abstract Brain-machine interfaces (BMI) create novel sensorimotor pathways for action. Much as the sensorimotor apparatus shapes natural motor control, the BMI pathway characteristics may also influence neuroprosthetic […]

Cognitive Neuroscience: Functional Specialization in Human Cerebellum.

Cognitive Neuroscience: Functional Specialization in Human Cerebellum. Curr Biol. 2018 Nov 05;28(21):R1256-R1258 Authors: Silver MA Abstract A new brain imaging study reveals that the human cerebellum contains a region that represents visual space that is dissociable from a region displaying visual memory-related activity, with both regions exhibiting precise functional coupling with corresponding cerebral cortical areas.
