Recent clinical trials have shown the feasibility of enabling paralyzed patients to control computer cursors and robotic arms with single units recorded from multielectrode arrays placed in the motor cortices of paralyzed individuals. In this chapter, we review the progress toward the development of reach and grasp prostheses in humans. We also review the relevant non-human primate literature and describe technical issues that need to be considered when designing motor prostheses systems.
