This article reviews neurophysical studies of the motor cortex in primates in relation to possible control of assistive technology devices by signals directly derived from the brain. Subjects discussed include: 1) Selection of sites for the derivation of control signals; 2) Arm-Hand areas of the cerebral cortex - topographical organization of the precentral motor cortex, control parameters in the discharge of motor cortex neurons, plasticity of motor cortex discharge; 3) Directions for further research.
