Somatosensory Feedback for Neuroprosthetics covers all relevant aspects to facilitate learning, research and development in the field. The book starts with chapters reviewing the basic anatomy, physiology and psychophysics of the somatosensory system, sensorimotor control and instrumentation. Some sections are dedicated to invasive (peripheral and central, mainly cortical) and noninvasive (vibrotactile, electrotactile, etc.) approaches. Final chapters cover future technologies such as novel sensors and electrodes, safety, clinical testing, commercialization, and practical use, helping make up future prospects for this field with an emphasis on development and end-use. With contributions from renowned experts, users will find recent findings and technical details surrounding findings. Although somatosensory system works in tandem with the motor system in biology, the majority of the prosthetics research and commercial efforts had focused on accommodating movement deficits. With the development of neuroprostheses in the last 15 years, it has become evident that somatosensory input (mainly as touch and proprioception) is essential for motor control, manipulating objects, and embodiment, in addition to its primary role for sensory perception. Provides a review of the somatosensory system and the latest advances in the use of somatosensory feedback for neuroprosthetics Analyzes many approaches to somatosensory feedback Provides the most detailed work on the somatosensory system, its development, and applications in real-life work

Biosignal Processing and Computational Methods to Enhance Sensory Motor Neuroprosthetics

Though there have been many developments in sensory/motor prosthetics, they have not yet reached the level of standard and worldwide use like pacemakers and cochlear implants. One challenging issue in motor prosthetics is the large variety of patient situations, which depending on the type of neurological disorder. To improve

Multisensory Integration of Lower Limb Somatosensory Neuroprostheses  from Psychophysics to Functionality

Over one million individuals in the United States have a lower-limb amputation. Though locomotion is a sensorimotor process, no commercially available prostheses offer somatosensory feedback, and amputees continue to face locomotor challenges. Recent studies have demonstrated that electrically stimulating the residual nerves of amputees can elicit somatosensory percepts referred to
