Restore

We are developing a treatment for paralysis whereby neural signals recorded from intact areas of the cortex are routed around an injury. Proportional stimulation is then delivered to paralyzed muscles or the spinal cord below the injury in order to restore volitional control of movement.

Reanimate

We have demonstrated that stimulation within the cervical spinal cord is capable of evoking hand and arm movements both before and after injury. Intraspinal stimulation evokes functional and synergistic movements that may be the ideal means to reanimate paralyzed limbs.

We are investigating whether intraspinal stimulation is capable of guiding spared pathways to functional targets after spinal cord injury. In collaboration with Phil Horner, we are also exploring the combined approach of stem cell therapies and electrical stimulation.

We are developing treatments for brain injury that provide augmented visual feedback of the activity of impaired muscles via a computer game. In collaboration with Sally McCoy, subjects learn to contract and relax muscles in coordinated patterns to control popular computer games.
