Limb Regeneration: Neuro-Responsive Prosthetics and Beyond

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limb regeneration, which is virtually absent in adult humans, is a tantalizing capability that several other species have retained. While a salamander can regrow an arm, we can at best grow a new fingertip. Loss of limbs from trauma and disease could be solved in two ways: understanding the signals and processes that limit and promote limb regeneration, or construct a bionic limb equivalent that is highly integrated with the patient’s nervous system.
