Despite enormous advances made in the development of external effector prosthetics over the last quarter century, significant questions remain, especially those concerning signal degradation that occurs with chronically implanted neuroelectrodes.

Offering contributions from pioneering researchers in neuroprosthetics and tissue repair, Indwel
