Neural subspaces of imagined movements in parietal cortex remain stable over several years in humans

bioRxiv [Preprint]. 2023 Jul 7:2023.07.05.547767. doi: 10.1101/2023.07.05.547767.


A crucial goal in brain-machine interfacing is long-term stability of neural decoding performance, ideally without regular retraining. Here we demonstrate stable neural decoding over several years in two human participants, achieved by latent subspace alignment of multi-unit intracortical recordings in posterior parietal cortex. These results can be practically applied to significantly expand the longevity and generalizability of future movement decoding devices.
