    The Sabes Lab studies how the brain uses sensory feedback to maintain accurate and adaptive movement control. His lab also applies this research to the development of Brain Machine Interfaces (BMIs). They recently demonstrated a novel learning-based approach to providing artificial sensory feedback to the brain. A goal of this work is to allow users to feel artificial devices they control via BMIs. His lab is also developing neural interfaces for both next-generation studies of brain-wide sensorimotor circuits and for the combined “read out” and “write in” of BMI signals across these circuits.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
