Dr. Sabes' laboratory works toward understanding how the brain controls movement, and in particular the role of sensory information and learning. His lab is also using this understanding to develop Brain Machine Interfaces to help people with severe sensory and motor loss, such as spinal cord injury. Dr. Sabes was a Marshall Scholar before earning his PhD in Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT. He was a Sloan Research Fellow and a McKnight Scholar. He and two members of his lab were awarded the 2013 Annual BCI (Brain Computer Interface) Research Award for their work on the development of artificial somatosensory feedback. He currently holds the Jack D. and DeLoris Lange Endowed Chair in Cell Physiology.
