Jessica D’Amico, PhD
Investigator, Neurophysiology Lab, Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center
Assistant Professor, Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Louisville

Dr. D’Amico has been the Scientific Director of the Neurophysiology Core within the Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center since 2018. Her previous work has identified pharmacological targets capable of modulating human spinal cord excitability (Nature Medicine 2010, J Physiology, 2016). Her current research interests include exploring novel pharmacological and stimulation paradigms to promote favorable spinal cord plasticity and identifying the neuronal mechanisms driving motor recovery after spinal cord injury.
