matsuoka_y_114CSE’s Yoky Matsuoka, recently interviewed by KPLU radio’s Keith Seinfeld, talks about her research on prosthetic hands.  The human hand has been one of the most difficult limbs for medicine to replace.

Listen to the complete interview here (5min MP3).  Read about the hand on Keith’s KPLU blog here.
