Mapping the Brain with Philip Sabes, PhD

It might seem like the ability to move your arm is easy, but it’s actually an incredibly difficult computation that your brain solves very easily.

Printing Information into the Brain

By mapping neurons and neuron circuitry during movement, Sabes’ lab hopes to one day to be able to print this information back into the brain. If feasible, such therapy could offer new hope to stroke victims whose brains are unable to recover on their own.
