Previous work by Dimitry G. Sayenko, PhD, demonstrates that electrical stimulation of the spinal cord, in combination with motor activity, can facilitate motor function and mobility after neurological injuries and disorders. Dr. Sayenko’s current research aims to investigate the effects and mechanisms of functional improvement via advanced electrophysiological and neuroimaging techniques, and to harness the plasticity of sensorimotor networks using therapeutic neuromodulation. His longer-term objective is to develop an innovative, interdisciplinary clinical research program spanning the interface between sensorimotor neuroscience, neurosurgery, neurorehabilitation, and robotic technologies.
