Neural Interfaces

High-performance prosthetic systems for humans will require sensing and control of tens of thousands of neural channels, one hundred times more channels than the systems we have previously developed for smaller primates. Delivering such performance within the power constraints of implanted devices is a major challenge. We are investigating approaches to reduce power consumption in neural signal acquisition and neural actuation circuits through a combination of adaptive circuit design and signal processing.
