CSNE sensory feedback research is making headlines

The CSNE has been in the news recently with a study led by CSNE member and UW bioengineering doctoral student, Jeneva Cronin. Cronin’s study, “Task-Specific Somatosensory Feedback via Cortical Stimulation in Humans,” has been featured in media outlets such as UW Today, the UW DailyGeekWire, New Atlas, NSF NewsScience 360, KOMO NewsRadio, futurism.comPune Mirror/India Times, and NSF Science Now.

The study is notable because this is the first time in humans researchers have been able to use brain surface stimulation to provide ‘touch’ feedback to direct movement, which is a potential method for providing sensory feedback in future prosthetic and rehabilitative applications.
