During the last decade, we have seen a rapid development of neural prostheses, the systems that connect the brain to external assistive and rehabilitation devices. While this work was dominated by the research on neural prostheses that enable sensorimotor functions of the arm and hand, there has also been growing interest in neural prostheses that restore locomotion, the ability to move in space. Brain-controlled wheelchairs and exoskeletons represent examples of such neural prostheses.

This Research Topic welcomes the submission of original research, reviews, hypotheses and theories in the field of neural prostheses for locomotion. We welcome work on both invasive and noninvasive neural prostheses, as well as prosthetic devices that employ EMG signals and residual motor activity in paralyzed patients. Submissions with the focus on robotic and electronic aspects are welcome, as well.


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.
