This chapter provides a definition for Neural Engineering and briefly describes its history. An introduction to neuroscientific principles is presented to provide a basis for understanding neurally-engineered developments. Specific advances in neuroprosthetics are described, including visual prosthetics, cochlear implants, myoelectric artificial limbs, brain-computer interfaces, and functional neuromuscular stimulation applications. Other neural engineering applications and the future potentials of the field are also considered.
