BrainGate Technology:
An Emerging Innovation to
Restore Arm and Hand Function


Thursday, May 16, 2019
6:30-8:00 PM Eastern Time

 

 

presented by
Leigh Hochberg, MD, PhD
Director, Center for Neurotechnology & Neurorecovery
Massachusetts General Hospital

 

 

 

 

For people with cervical spinal cord injury and other neurological illnesses, more work is needed to develop assistive and rehabilitation technologies. Neuroscience research has led to the development of intracortical "brain-computer interfaces" (iBCIs) which are being developed to restore lost function. The first ongoing pilot clinical trials of an iBCI system, BrainGate, seek to determine the feasibility of persons with tetraplegia controlling a computer cursor or other devices simply by "intending" the movement of their own hand. Through the ongoing research, a variety of methods for decoding brain signals are being tested with the hope of returning movement to paralyzed limbs.  

 

Webcast attendees will be able to:

  • Provide an introduction to the use of brain-computer interfaces to restore movement in people with upper limb paralysis
  • Provide an overview of ongoing brain-computer interface-based clinical trials
  • Review the use of computer-based technology in the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions
