NEUROPHYSIOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT OF RESIDUAL SUPRASPINAL INPUT AFTER SCI

The major goal of this project is to develop quantitative, sensitive tools to measure neuroplasticity in the human after injury to detect change preceding functional changes.

EFFECTS OF ACTIVITY RECOVERY OF BLADDER AND SEXUAL FUNCTION AFTER SPINAL CORD INJURY

The major goal is to determine whether spinal cord circuits responsible for walking are also important for bladder and sexual functions and reorganize in response to Locomotor Training and/or epidural stimulation after SCI to improve these functions and alter important chemicals in the body.

SPINAL EPIDURAL ELECTRODE ARRAY TO FACILITATE STANDING AND STEPPING AFTER SCI

The major goal of this research is to investigate the combined effects of stand and step (locomotor) training with electrical stimulation of the spinal cord in individuals who have had a complete SCI.
