Research Goals
We are interested in how hand movements are generated in the primate brain and how intentions to grasp objects can be decoded for controlling a neural prosthesis. For this, we investigate the cortical representation of hand movements in motor-related cortical areas and their relation to sensory systems and decision making. Furthermore, we are developing brain-machine interfaces that can read out such movement intentions to control robotic devices. Such systems could be useful for future applications aiming to restore hand function in paralyzed patients.
