Research on neural prosthetics has focused largely on
using activity related to hand trajectories recorded from
motor cortical areas. An interesting question revolves
around what other signals might be read out from the
brain and used for neural prosthetic applications. Recent
studies indicate that goals and expected value are among
the high-level cognitive signals that can be used and will
potentially enhance the ability of paralyzed patients to
communicate with the outside world. Other new find-
ings show that local field potentials provide an excellent
