    Title:
    –Closed Loop Biohybrid Systems for Restoring Neural Function–

    Abstract:
    Real-time communication between a nervous system and a device is now possible, but full and reliable integration in biohybrid systems is still far from reality. Biohybrid systems of the future are likely to utilize biomimetic machines with direct neural interfaces not only to integrate with the biological system, but also to close the loop in a manner that promotes adaptation in the nervous system. This talk will present some of our work that uses tools and techniques from computational neuroscience and neural engineering to develop biohybrid systems. An ongoing study is developing a neuromorphic adaptive control system to provide ventilatory assistance after spinal cord injury. In other work, a first-in-human trial is planned to restore sensation to upper limb amputees with a neural-enabled prosthetic hand system.
