Austin J. Brockmeier, John S. Choi, Marcello M. DiStasio, Joseph T. Francis, Jose C. Principe
2011 2011 Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society  
We propose using reinforcement learning as a framework to balance the exploration of the parameter space and the continued selection of promising parameters for further stimulation.  ...  In the case of existing somatosensory function, a template of the natural response can be used as a template of desired response elicited by electrical microstimulation.  ...  CONCLUSION In this work we propose using reinforcement learning as a framework for online selection of microstimulation parameters to elicit an evoked response close to a natural template.  ...

Caudate Microstimulation Increases Value of Specific Choices

Samantha R. Santacruz, Erin L. Rich, Joni D. Wallis, Jose M. Carmena
2017 Current Biology  
The modulation of choice behavior using microstimulation was best modeled as resulting from changes in stimulus value.  ...  Electrical microstimulation is known to induce neural plasticity [10, 11] and caudate microstimulation in primates has been shown to accelerate associative learning [12, 13] .  ...  In this work, we developed a choice task where optimal decisions were not spatially lateralized and asked how microstimulation would alter behavior.  ...

2016 Journal of Neural Engineering  
However, systematic methods for encoding a wide array of naturally occurring stimuli into biomimetic percepts via multi-channel microstimulation are lacking.  ...  We address this problem by first modeling the dynamical input-output relationship between multichannel microstimulation and downstream neural responses, and then optimizing the input pattern to reproduce  ...  These calibrations could also be optimized under a reinforcement learning framework [58] in which user-generated evaluative feedback could drive fine adjustments to parameters over time.  ...
