Abstract:AFTER the tremendous clinical success of the cochlear
implant over the last 20 years, neuroprosthetic systems
are now being developed and applied for the blind. First results on implanted epiretinal arrays in humans are becoming available now and lead to clear suggestions of how to improve electrode design, device characteristics, and implant procedures. Besides implants in humans and animals, research on in vitro neuronal network systems is progressively expanding. Interesting combinations of multi-electrode array devices with microfluidic systems will allow pharmacological control of networks in a very precise way. Several papers in this Special Issue of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON NEURAL SYSTEMS AND REHABILITATION ENGINEERING are related to various neural neuroprosthetic systems.
This Special Issue is a collective effort by active researchers who specialize in the field of neural engineering, and we hope it will provide a rich resource with regard to the state-of-the-art of neural engineering research.
