Here, the motor task can be assisted with neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) where the BMI will act as a real-time decoder.  ...  However, the cortical control and induction of neuroplasticity in a closed-loop BMI is also dependent on the state of brain, e.g., visuospatial attention during visuomotor task performance.  ...  The technical help received from the interns-R. Sehgal, G. Aggarwal, A. Jacob, and D. Kumar-in the development of the experimental setup is gratefully acknowledged.  ...
