News Brief: Thakor and team earn 2022 Misha Mahowald award

February 16, 2023

The 2022 Misha Mahowald Prize for Neuromorphic Engineering was awarded to a team led by Nitish Thakor at Johns Hopkins University for their pioneering work on “Neuromorphic e-Dermis for Restoring Complex Touch” that brings tactile perception to humans with a prosthetic arm.

The Neuromorphic e-Dermis Team invented a multilayered, artificial electronic dermis (e-dermis) to restore complex tactile perceptions of pressure and pain to prosthesis users and provide robotic systems with intelligent, neurally-inspired representations of high-dimensional tactile information using neuromorphic representations of touch.
