    The impact of task context on predicting finger movements in a brain-machine interface

    Matthew J Mender, Samuel R Nason-Tomaszewski ... Cynthia A Chestek
    Task changes, like increased force production or altered posture, decrease the accuracy of brain-machine interfaces predicting intended finger movements, however, understanding how neural activity changes with the altered biomechanics of the task may provide insights for generalizable decoder development.
