A direct neural interface (DNI) is a direct communication pathway between the nervous system and an external device. DNI is also known by other terms like brain-machine interface (BMI) and brain-computer interface (BCI). BMI translates neuronal information into instructions for external software or hardware such as a computer or robotic arm and can also serve to communicate sensory data collected by an external device back to the human nervous system. This chapter addresses neural interfaces, for example, cortical microelectrode technologies and high-resolution peripheral neuromuscular interfaces. Comprehensive review of electrode technologies used for stimulation and recording is provided. Additionally, several practical applications involving BMI-based control of an external device are addressed.
