About the Lab

The Robotics and Sensorimotor Control Lab at Virginia Tech is comprised of a multi-disciplinary research team that is investigating how humans perceive somatosensory signals at their upper limbs. The overarching research goal of the lab is to apply robotics concepts to the field of quantitative systems neuroscience to develop a richer understanding of the human sensorimotor system and, in turn, to develop more effective treatments for those with compromised haptic perception and motor control.
