Developing a Prosthetic Arm that is Affordable and Controlled by the Brain

We have been researching neural control of hand movements using electroencephalography to determine what information is already present that can be used to further our work and provide proper background for it.Lab-Jodis - 1 (1) We are also currently working on cleaning up and analyzing the data taken last summer.
