This chapter begins with a brief review of the earlier ideas and advances in the interaction between neural and artificial systems. It then reviews recent advances in the use of signals extracted by electroencephalography (EEG) and by electrodes implanted in cortical areas for generating commands to artificial devices. It discusses the role of sensory feedback and the problem of creating an artificial version of it by transmitting sensory information to the nervous system via electrical stimulation. It offers a view on the clinical impact of neural engineering, both in its current state and in the foreseeable future.

Keywords:   electroencephalography, sensory feedback, motor prosthetics, brain-computer interface, human-computer interaction
