In order to develop an artificial heart system capable of being controlled by autonomic nervous signals, we have studied the methods of long-term stable recording of autonomic nervous signals and algorisms to utilize those signals to control an artificial heart system optimally. In this study, we have focused on the feasibility of the control of an artificial heart using the signals recorded from the cardiac sympathetic nerve and other nerves through animal experiments.
