1- Lets say you were tasked with designing a neuroprosthesis for the neurological disorders below. Which brain structures would you need fix using your neural engineering skills?
a) Parkinson's disease
2 - You are trying to model the basal ganglia with an implantable neuroprosthetic system. What are the main nuclei you should consider? What major structures provide their inputs? What are their major projections (outputs)?
3 - The red nucleus of the brain stem in a monkey is lesioned. What if any changes would one expect to observe in the monkey's forelimb movements? What would happen if an additional lesion is made in the pyramidal tract?
