Date:  April 30th, 2018 (Monday)                                          

 

Time: 11.00am 

 

Venue: LHC Seminar Hall – I, RIT

 

All the Faculty and Students are invited

 

ABSTRACT OF THE TALK:

 

Recent technological innovations such as functional neuro-muscular stimulation (FNS) offer considerable benefits to paralyzed individuals. FNS can produce movement in paralyzed muscles by the application of electrical stimuli to the nerves innervating the muscles. The first part of this talk will describe how smooth muscle movements can be evoked using electrode arrays inserted into the motor nerves of the peripheral nervous system. Animal experiments demonstrating the feasibility of the method will also be described. The second part of this talk will describe efforts to decode human motor intent from neural signals. Novel machine learning algorithms for accomplishing this objective will be presented. The decoded information can then be used to evoke desired movements of paralyzed muscles or to control prosthetic devices in patients with limb loss. Results of experiments involving human amputee subjects will be described and discussed. The talk will conclude with a discussion of some of the current research challenges in these problems.
