Now that recordings of multiple, individual action potentials are being made with chronic electrodes, it seems that previous work showing simple encoding of movement parameters in these spike trains can be used as a real-time control signal for prosthetic arms. Efficient extraction algorithms can compensate for the limited ensemble sample acquired with this emerging technology.
