    Abstract : Sensory feedback possesses the possibility of adding a new dimension to many applications, including, but not limited to, prosthetics and surgical robots for improved control, virtual reality for incorporation of another sense, and phantom limb pain reduction for amputees. Electrotactile stimulation provides a compact, light-weight, energy efficient, highly responsive, and non-invasive option for sensory feedback; however, it has been found to commonly elicit unnatural or uncomfortable sensations for the user.

  2. 2. Function of Cerebellar Microcircuitry within a Closed-loop System during Control and Adaptation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för reglerteknik

    Author : Anton Spanne; [2011]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The human motor control is both robust and stable, despite large delays and highly complex motor systems with an abundance of actuators, sensors and degrees of freedom. The cerebellum is thought help accomplish this by compensating for external loads and internal limitations and disturbances through adaptation, creating inverse models of the motor system dynamics.
