    Clinical neuroengineering is the integration of clinical neuroscience and engineering. It is an emerging field that involves engineering, modeling, signal processing, imaging, and the development of sensors/electronics and other devices to solve important emerging problems in clinical neurosciences. This paper presents examples of therapeutic technologies that are close to or in clinical practice.... View full abstract»

    Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) hold the promise to restore mobility and independence to persons with paralysis. In spinal cord injury, brainstem stroke, and a host of neuromuscular disorders, the intact brain is "disconnected" from its intact target (such as a limb or the facial musculature), preventing mobility and - in locked-in syndrome and severe amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) - preclud...

    This work investigates two important components in neural implants, the information link and the energy source. In this paper, a new concept in which neural implants operate on the biological resources readily available to them is adopted. The volume conduction property of human tissue is employed to pass information, and the electrons released during cellular metabolic process are collected to su... View full abstract»

    In this article, the authors report on a retinal prosthesis smart stimulator that is biocompatible and fully compatible with a standard large-scale-integration (LSI) structure and that provides high-stimulation efficiency. Our stimulator is based on multimicrochip architecture. The stimulator has been specifically developed for retinal prostheses, but it could be applied to other neuroscience and ...

    Retinal prostheses have the potential to restore some level of visual function to blind individuals. While visual prosthetic devices for the optic nerve and visual cortex also have potential application, the retinal approach offers the advantage of relatively accessible retinal neurons in the back of the eye. Biological studies have demonstrated biocompatibility of implantation and stimulation and... View full abstract»

    In this article, we report efforts to integrate a number of state-of-the-art technologies for MRI-guided neurosurgery at the Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) in Boston. These include advanced intraoperative imaging, image registration, visualization, navigation, minimally invasive ablative therapies, and robotics. This is part of a multidisciplinary Image-Guided Therapy Program that comprises se... View full abstract»

    This article outlines the basics of implantable neurological stimulators (INSs) and electrodes. Mechanisms of neural stimulation relevant to the clinician are reviewed, including the activating function, strength-duration relationship, and strength-distance relationship as well as safety considerations including safe charge and charge density levels. Clinical examples are taken from spinal cord st... View full abstract»
