I'm considering having a go at revising this article to:
A) include a broader spread of neuroprosthetics applications e.g. Functional Neuromuscular Stimulation/FES, Implanted Stimulator-Telemeters, Artificial Pacemaker (also a neural prosthetic device).
B) complete the logical division between sensory and motor prostheses with a section on cognitive prostheses i.e. the proposed Hippocampal Implant.
Has anyone watching got any thoughts on this? Simbamford 04:58, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
- Please continuing editing - its needs it. One thing to watch is managing the overlap with Brain-computer interface. Perhaps it would be worth shifting the Berger and Kennedy material there and using Neuroprosthetics as the high level article that links all the others together? Saganaki- 05:56, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
Artificial (Cardiac) Pacemaker ?
I have reservations about the inclusion of the artificial cardiac pacemaker in this article. As far as I am aware, cardiac pacemakers stimulate the excitable tissue (read: muscle) of the heart directly not via the nervous system. There may be some (experimental?) cardiac pacemakers that seek to affect heart function by stimulation of the Vagus nerve, but if they exist they are certainly the exception, not the rule. And in any rate I have not been able to find any information about them. Are there any objections to the removal of this section? --joeyo (talk) 18:08, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
CIA and MKULTRA
HonestGeorgeWashington (talk · contribs) has added some very dubiously sourced material about the CIA to this article. I removed it with an explanatory edit summary, and HGW reverted with no explanation. Because I don't like to multi-revert even in clear cases, I have opened a thread about this issue at WP:FTN#HonestGeorgeWashington on Neuroprosthetics. I'm explaining all this here in the interest of transparency. Looie496 (talk) 02:14, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Reads like a Magazine Article
For example, "The future holds an exciting prospect for the every day use of a variety of neural prostheses."
