    A synergy-based hand control is encoded in human motor cortical areas

    Andrea Leo et al.
    The human brain encodes coordinated patterns of joint movements – synergies – to increase the efficiency with which it can control complex hand movements.

    Stretching the skin immediately enhances perceived stiffness and gradually enhances the predictive control of grip force

    Mor Farajian et al.
    Elucidating the contribution of augmented artificial skin-stretch stimulation to the fingertips to the immediate illusion of a higher stiffness and to an increased predictive grip force control.

    Microsecond interaural time difference discrimination restored by cochlear implants after neonatal deafness

    Nicole Rosskothen-Kuhl et al.
    Early deaf human CI users are often insensitive to sub-millisecond interaural time differences (ITDs); however, with synchronized CIs, early deafened rats learned to lateralize small ITDs near 50 µs.

    Wireless recording from unrestrained monkeys reveals motor goal encoding beyond immediate reach in frontoparietal cortex

    Michael Berger et al.
    The novel Reach Cage allows neurophysiology studies of structured behavior with unrestrained Rhesus macaques showing that the frontoparietal reach network is selective for reach goals outside the immediately reachable space.

    Exposing distinct subcortical components of the auditory brainstem response evoked by continuous naturalistic speech

    Melissa J Polonenko, Ross K Maddox
    The response from discrete stages of the early auditory pathway can be measured by subtle manipulations to long-form natural speech stimuli paired with deconvolution analysis of electroencephalography data.

    Vacillation, indecision and hesitation in moment-by-moment decoding of monkey motor cortex

    Matthew T Kaufman et al.
    Trial-by-trial analysis of neuronal activity in monkeys performing a decision-making task reveals the neural correlates of behaviours including wavering, hesitation and sudden changes of mind.

    Intracortical Microstimulation: Regaining the senses of touch and movement

    Victor de Lafuente
    Artificially activating certain neurons in the cortex can make a tetraplegic patient feel naturalistic sensations of skin pressure and arm movement.

    Point of View: Bioengineering horizon scan 2020

    Luke Kemp et al.
    20 emerging issues in bioengineering that will have profound impacts on society have been identified.

    Decoding the neural mechanisms of human tool use

    Jason P Gallivan et al.
    Imaging experiments reveal that some brain regions do not distinguish between actions performed using tools and those performed using the hands, while others represent these two types of action separately.

    Proprioceptive and cutaneous sensations in humans elicited by intracortical microstimulation

    Michelle Armenta Salas et al.
    Electrical microstimulation of human somatosensory cortex elicited purely naturalistic proprioceptive and cutaneous sensations, with proprioceptive sensations more prominent at higher current amplitudes suggesting a relationship between amplitude and sensation type.
