    Abstract

    Artificial electrical stimulation of motor nerves for muscle control can be made selective by using intrafascicular micro electrode arrays which contact many individual or small groups of nerve fibres. If at the same time te electrode arrays could record afferent information from the stimulated muscle's spindles and tendon organs, closed loop control of muscles would come into view. This requires 1) research into the possibilities of recording afferent signals, using the micro electrode arrays 2) identification of a stumulated fibre as an alpha motoneuron by evaluation of afferent response patterns. First results are presented.
