Neuron-based control mechanisms for a robotic arm and hand (Singh et al 2017)

"A robotic arm and hand controlled by simulated neurons is presented. The robot makes use of a biological neuron simulator using a point neural model. ... The robot performs a simple pick-and-place task. ... As another benefit, it is hoped that further work will also lead to a better understanding of human and other animal neural processing, particularly for physical motion. This is a multidisciplinary approach combining cognitive neuroscience, robotics, and psychology."
