Novel Methods to Restore Sensory and Motor Function

3:30 PM - 5:00 PM Friday, January 24

This session will cover novel invasive methods to restore sensory and motor function in neuroprosthetic applications. This will include spinal cord stimulation, as well as peripheral nerve stimulation and recording.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss novel forms of spinal cord stimulation for sensory restoration.
  • Identify novel forms of spinal cord stimulation for restoring motor control.
  • Illustrate how novel patterns of stimulation can lead to different sensory percepts.
  • Describe the use of electromyography-amplified neural signals for prosthetic finger movement and naturalistic sensory feedback.
