Project Details

Our team has developed an endovascular brain machine interface, a device designed to enable people with paralysis to control external equipment with their minds. Over the next year, we will be developing hardware and to enable neural signals acquired with the Stentrode to control communication tools and vehicles. Through this project, we will also be evaluating and optimising fMRI based training protocols that will be used to teach patients to use their minds to control assistive technology.
