Electrical signals recorded from the neurons of human patients by intracortical microelectrodes have been used to communicate with computers, control robotic limbs, and recently in a VA study, control the patient's own arm. The signal quality and the length of time that useful signals can be recorded are inconsistent. The consensus view of the community is that the inflammatory response of neural tissue that surrounds the microelectrodes, at least in part, compromises electrode reliability. Seve...
