Emergence of a Stable Cortical Map for Neuroprosthetic Control
(A) Changes in BC performance for consecutive days in the setting of a fixed decoder and a fixed set of units in two monkeys (inset = Monkey R). The top panel shows the mean accuracy per day, and the bottom panel shows the mean time to reach each target with training. Error bars represent ±2 standard errors of the mean (s.e.m.). (B) Trends of performance for select days for Monkey P. For each day, the moving average (i.e., percentage of correct trials for a moving window of 20 trials) of performance is shown. (C) Performance during the first 5 min of BC for each daily session. Each bar represents an initiated trial (red = error trial, blue = correct trial). (D) Left: representative examples of single-trial cursor trajectories during the initial (day 3, n = 1/target) and the late (day 13, n = 5/target) phases of BC performance. The targets are shown in grey. Right: color map of the comparison of mean trajectories for each day. Each pixel represents the pairwise correlation between the mean paths from the center to each of the eight targets. R = correlation coefficient.
