Cortical neural prosthetics seek to help paralyzed patients by recording their thoughts directly from the brain and decoding them to control external devices such as computer interfaces, robotic limbs and muscle stimulators.
These prosthetics ‘read-out’ signals by recording neural activity and are different from prosthetics for the deaf and blind that ‘write-in’ signals by delivering electrical stimulation.
Broadly speaking, there are two different types of cortical prosthetics for paralyzed patients ? motor prosthetics and cognitive prosthetics.
