Peripheral nervous system, widely spread in the whole body, is the important bridge for the transmission of neural signals. Signals from the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) are transmitted to different parts of the body by the peripheral nerves, while along the way they also feedback all kinds of sensory information. Certain level of information integration and processing also occurs in the system. It has been shown that neural signals could be extracted from the distal end of the stump, indicating that the bridge is still effective after limb damage or amputation, which is the neurophysiological basis for the research and development of peripheral nerve interface for the prosthetic system.
