 -  Faculty Greg Clark and his Bioengineering graduate students, Jake George and David Kluger, made national headlines in the Washington Post and Chicago Tribune for reporting recent work on their robotic prosthetic hand that restores some sense of touch to amputees. Jake George's Society for Neuroscience abstract (on sensory encoding, embodiment, and phantom pain) and David Kluger's abstract (on closed-loop control) were both been selected for public highlighting by the Society for Neuroscience. Jake's talk was further selected for a press conference presentation and interview, which is held for only a few hundred from tens of thousands of abstracts. Additionally, Jake was the recipient of a travel award.  Read More
