When you prick your finger, what you feel is a consequence of activity in the brain, not the finger itself. Biomedical engineers using this concept are leading an evolution in protheses that help the estimated 2 million Americans who suffer from limb loss to "feel" their missing limbs again. This emerging field of devices for sensory restoration has applications far and beyond those afflicted by limb loss.

Guests

Dustin Tyler, Associate Professor, Biomedical Engineering, Case Western Reserve University
Dr. Clay Kelly, Chief of Service at Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center for the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Service
