Emerging Neural Technologies for NeuroRehabilitation

Emerging Neural Tech SI banner

The Science Partner Journal Cyborg and Bionic Systems is now considering submissions for the Special Issue on Emerging Neural Technologies for NeuroRehabilitation.


Rehabilitation is a process that involves restoration of physical, psychological, and social functions towards improving the quality of life for individuals with various motor, sensory, and/or cognitive impairment. NeuroRehabilitation represents a complex process aimed at aiding recovery from a nervous system injury or disorder, and at the same time compensates for associated functional alterations resulting from such injury. A variety of neural inclined technologies have been developed to help the affected individuals regain functional independence during activities of daily living. In fact, a number of reports from clinical studies have shown that neurologically inclined diseases could be adequately treated with associated dysfunctions restored using these technologies. Therefore, this special issue seeks high-quality contributions from the academia and industry that represent advances in the field of Neuromodulation and NeuroRehabilitation Engineering Technologies. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following: 

  • Neural-machine interfaces 
  • Flexible sensors for neural signal recording
  • Re-innervation and neural functional recovery
  • Neuro-modulation and neuro-feedback
  • Neural signal processing and analysis towards neurorehabilitation
  • Neuro-prostheses and assistive technologies
