How does the brain represent the sense of touch (the feel of a fork in your hand, the wind in your hair)? If the sense of touch is impaired or lost (e.g., as a result of a spinal injury), can we recreate this sense via patterned brain stimulation? Our lab seeks to build new knowledge about the neural representation of touch and leverage this knowledge to develop new technologies that will eventually enable the restoration of the sense of touch in the sense-impaired.
