A Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) uses electrophysiological measures of brain activity to communicate with external devices, bypassing normal neuromuscular pathways. We develop BCIs for neuroprosthetic control of advanced prosthetic limbs and restoration of motor control for amputees.  
 
Our group focuses on signal processing techniques and developing novel cortical and myoelectric control strategies for control of prosthetic limbs using:
ECoG (electrocorticography)
Noninvasive EEG (electroencephalography)
Local field potentials (LFP)
Single and multi-unit activity
Surface EMG (electromyography)
Programs like the DARPA Revolutionizing Prosthetics project aim to develop a fully neurally-controlled upper-limb prosthetic device, with full motor control and sensory feedback that mimics the human limb.
