About this Research Topic
Advances in the electrode microfabrication, biomimetic materials, power and data telemetry, and processing and modeling of neuronal signaling drive the development of neuroprosthetic devices for treatment of neurological disorders. This Research Topic features the original research aimed at development of neural interfaces from the early prototypes toward eventual clinical use. Main focus is on implantable devices directly interfaced to neurons inside the brain rather than noninvasive BMI/BCI techniques. A variety of applications is covered including restoring sensory functions (auditory and visual prostheses) and motor functions (functional electrical stimulation and spinal cord stimulation) and neuromodulation (in the deep brain, cortex, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves). Papers will be reviewed by members of the Alliance for Innovations in Neural Technology http://neurotechzone.com/alliance.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
