This special issue focuses on the latest advances in neural-assistive technologies including systems and strategies for monitoring, reconstructing and integrating user state and intention during adaptive human-machine interaction. Topics of interest include:

  • User intention detection from neural and peripheral physiological signals
  • Brain signal decoding
  • User state estimation
  • Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) for human-robot interaction (HRI)
  • Brain/neural-machine interfaces (B/NMI) for motor control and neurorehabilitation
  • Assistive neurorobotics, prosthetics and biomechanics
  • Robot-aided rehabilitation to trigger neuroplasticity, neurorestoration and neuroregeneration
  • Closed-loop sensory feedback and neuromodulation
