The research to better understand intricate sensory and cognitive connections between the brain and the hands has won support from the National Science Foundation, which has awarded a $640,000 grant to the work. It will fund a collaboration between Marco Santello, an ASU professor of biomedical engineering, and Columbia University scientist Andrew Gordon. 
In their current project, they are seeking to determine neural mechanisms that control learning and planning of the grasping and manipulation of objects.
