  Cockroaches Give Undergrads a Leg Up in Designing Biomechatronic Prostheses
 
Over the course of five lab sessions, undergraduate students in the Department of Bioengineering have created an "HCMI"- a human-cockroach machine interface that can translate an individual's own nerve signals into ones that can control a cockroach leg. The goal is to use this research to better understand the development of prosthetic devices.
