This is an academic sketch on how Prof. Ferdinando (Sandro) Mussa-Ivaldi (Northwestern University and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago) et al. with younger companions from the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), universities of Ferrara and Genova, also supported by Dr. Antonio Novellino (Institute for Health and Consumer Protection – Joint Research Centre, Italy), Dr. Thomas DeMarse (University of Florida), and Prof. Steve M. Potter (Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University) is publishing somebody else's research results.

Subject: your paper titled “New perspectives on the dialogue betweenbrains and machines”From: Rostyslav SKLYAR, Dr.Ing. (r_sklyar@hotmail.com)Date: June 10, 2010To: Prof. Ferdinando (Sandro) Mussa-Ivaldi (sandro@northwestern.edu)Copy: Dr. Antonio Novellino (antonio.novellino@ettsolutions.com)Copy: Prof. Steve M. Potter (steve.potter@bme.gatech.edu)
Dear Prof. Mussa-Ivaldi,Having read your paper titled “New perspectives on the dialogue between brains andmachines” (Frontiers in Neuroscience, May 2010, Volume 4), I discovered that thedescribed “bidirectional interfaces, which operate in two ways by translating neuralsignals into input commands for the device and the output of the device into neuralstimuli” are based on the known principle which has been developed by me duringseveral years:Sklyar R., "An EM Transistor Based Brain-Processor Interface", in: Nanotech 2009 vol. 2,Nanotechnology 2009: Life Sciences, Medicine, Diagnostics, Bio Materials andComposites, chapt. 3: Nano Medicine, May 3-7, 2009, in Houston, Texas, U.S.A., pp.131 -134,www.nsti.org/procs/Nanotech2009v2/3/T82.602;Sklyar R., "CNT and Organic FETs Based Two-Way Transducing of the Neurosignals", in:Nanotech 2008 vol. 2, Nanotechnology 2008: Life Sciences, Medicine, and Bio Materials,Nano Science & Technology Institute, Cambridge, MA, USA, CRC Press, vol. 2, chapt. 6:Nano Medicine & Neurology, pp. 475-478,www.nsti.org/procs/Nanotech2008v2/6/M81.404;Sklyar R., “Two-way Interface for Directing the Biological Signals”, European Cells andMaterials, vol. 14, suppl. 3, 2007, page 37,www.ecmjournal.org/journal/supplements/vol014supp03/pdf/v014supp03a037.pdf ;Sklyar R., "Sensors with a Bioelectronic Connection", IEEE Sensors Journal (SpecialIssue), vol. 7, iss. 5, 2007, pp. 835-841;Sklyar R., “A SuFET Based Either Implantable or Non-Invasive (Bio)Transducer of NerveImpulses, 13th International Symposium on Measurement and Control in Robotics-Toward Advanced Robots: Design, Sensors, Control and Applications - ISMCR'03,Madrid, Spain, Dec. 11-12, 2003, Inst. de Automatica Industrial, Consejo Superior deInvestigaciones Cientificas, pp. 121-126.Especially functioning of “dynamical behavior of a neural system engaged in a two-wayinteraction with an external device” and a left side of Figure 1 are copied directly frommy papers.That is why I do consider this incident as an extremely impudent attempt to assume my
 
work. Also I am insisting on publication the relevant corrections/explanations.Regards,Rostyslav

Dear Dr. Skylar,thanks for sending me your reference to your papers. I have not read any of them sofar. But I may read them when I find a moment, since the titles suggest that they areindeed on topics of mutual interest.As for your silly and insulting suggestion that we have copied any of your ideas/text orart, I would just point out to you thata) all materials in the articles is original and solely our own, andb) your papers are dated between 2003 and 2009, whereas my own work onbidirectional interfaces has first been published as B.D. Reger, K. M. Fleming, V.Sanguineti, S. Alford and F.A. Mussa-Ivaldi, “Connecting brains to robots: Thedevelopment of a hybrid system for the study of learning in neural tissue.” /ArtificialLife./6:307-324,/ /2000. in 2000!That article had quite an echo in the general press. So, perhaps you may haveinadvertently lifted some of my own ideas instead. For which I would grant you mypermission.SincerelySandro Mussa-Ivaldi

R: your paper titled “New perspectives on the dialogue between brains andmachines”From: Antonio Novellino (antonio.novellino@ettsolutions.com)Date: June 10, 2010To:'Rostyslav SKLYAR, Dr.Ing.' (

Dear Dr.Skylar,Let me thank you for your references, it's always interesting having updates fromcolleagues especially when the visibility of their work is somehow hidden, I mean if yourcontribute is presented in either a congress or a specific-topic book, unless you do someadvertisement, many people can miss them.
 
At same time I'd like to say that I've been working in the field for about ten year andboth Prof. Mussa-Ivaldi and Prof. Potter can be considered the fathers de-facto of the in-vitro bidirectional neuronal interfaces: they started publishing in 2000 and 2001 on thistopic. On top of this the specific aim of the paper is a focused review about the researchactivity of the invited group, so it's normal the focus is focused (sorry for the wordgame) on their results.What I can suggest you (personal opinion) is to submit your own review to Frontiers inNeurorobotics, once accepted you can reach a very wide audience and better promoteyour results, your research and yourself.Looking forward to hearing from youWith kind regardsAntonio

First of all I don't need your permission, because my idea was disclosed a year beforeyour paper with the correct title: “Connecting Brains to Robots: An Artificial Body forStudying the Computational Properties of Neural Tissues”, as a poster submission “AnSFET Based Transducer of Nerve Impulses (The Living Being-Machine Interface Schemeas an Intelligent System's Term)” to “Shaping the Future” project of EXPO 2000 in Sept.1999. It is necessary to emphasize that an abstract of your paper is an exact descriptionof my schematic. Of course, your team had time for the experimental implementation of my method.Secondly, can you confirm your lack of knowledge (together with Dr. Novellino) aboutmy papers during the last several years- do you believe this? Moreover that thesereferences are only the main papers and their results were widely published in thematerials of several European conferences, and web resources. Specifically, they havebeen placed during the year on the same website “Frontiers in Science”:http://frontiersin.org/conferences/individual_abstract_listing.php?conferid=155&pap=2085&ind_abs=1&q=103-An EM Transistor/Memristor (EMTM) Based Brain-Processor Interface;
