Title: Matching Robotic Assistive Devices with Basic Physiological Principles of Sensorimotor Function.
Abstract: There is an increasing capability to control the distribution of current with a wide range of complicated designs of micro arrays and patterns of stimulation parameters that can be used to apply neuromodulate the nervous system. We are developing methods to achieve a much more adaptable and highly successful modulatory methodology that can focus currents on specific population of interneuronal networks within the spinal cord that define how motor pools and thus muscles are recruited and coordinated. I will discuss technical developments which can lead to maximizing the potential of spinal networks to process complex dynamic ensembles of proprioceptive input that can facilitate significant recovery of function post paralysis.
