We propose a complementary approach to the design of neural prosthetic interfaces that goes beyond the standard approach of estimating desired control signals from neural activity. We exploit the fact that the for a user's intended application, the dynamics of the prosthetic in fact impact subsequent desired control inputs. We illustrate that changing the dynamic response of a prosthetic device can make specific tasks significantly easier to accomplish. Our approach relies upon principles from stochastic control and feedback information theory, and we illustrate its effectiveness both theoretically and experimentally - in terms of spelling words from a menu of characters using binary surface electromyography classification.
