  • Invention connects brain functioning to limb control. R&D Digest. October, 2002.

    A neuroscientist at Queen's University (Kingston, ON, Canada) has created a mathematical model and a new device that could eventually increase understanding of the role the brain plays in arm and leg movement. His invention may ultimately improve methods for assessing and rehabilitating stroke and spinal cord victims. It could also help provide the basis for developing neural prostheses capable of restoring function to paralyzed limbs. (view)
