Control of primate forelimb movements and muscles by cortical and spinal neurons. - Eberhard Fetz

Thursday, 5 September, 2013 - 15:30 to 17:30

This tutorial will be on the primate motor system, focusing on neural control of movements and muscles in motor cortex and spinal cord.

Bidirectional interactions between the brain and implantable computers. Eberhard E. Fetz

Friday, 6 September, 2013 - 09:30 to 11:00

We are investigating the consequences of bidirectional connections produced by an autonomous implantable recurrent brain-computer interface [R-BCI] that operates continuously during free behavior and generates activity-dependent stimulation of the brain or muscles. This device consists of battery-powered electronics connected to electrodes that record the activity of motor cortex cells and/or muscles. The neural activity is processed by a programmable computer chip and can be converted in real-time to activity-contingent stimuli delivered to nervous system sites or muscles.
