Baker, Kenneth, PhD

My research interests are in the areas of neuromodulation, in particular the application of neurostimulation-based approaches for the study and treatment of neurological and psychiatric disease. I am currently involved in studies of the neurophysiology of movement disorders, the therapeutic mechanisms of deep brain stimulation (DBS), and the potential of novel DBS approaches to improve…

Anderson, Kimberly, PhD

Bladder dysfunction resulting from neurological disease or spinal cord injury can have a devastating clinical impact. Several of my studies have focused on obtaining the perspective of people living with SCI on various aspects of research, including functional priorities, acceptable benefits and risks, preferences for neuroprosthetics, and exercise participation.  I have expertise in SCI outcome…

Alberts, Jay, PhD

The aim of my research is to understand structure-function relationships within the central nervous system and the upper extremity. Our goal is to understand the complex interactions involved in the systems-level neural organization and control of bladder and urethral function. We use this information to develop neural prostheses or rehabilitative techniques that interface with the…

Ajiboye, A Bolu, PhD

My main research interest is in the development and control of brain-computer-interface (BCI) technologies for restoring function to individuals who have experienced severely debilitating injuries to the nervous system, such as spinal cord injury and stroke.  Currently, I am interested in understanding at a systems level the relationships between the firing patterns of multi-neuronal networks…

Knutson, Jayme, PhD

My research interests are in the development and clinical evaluation of novel neuroprosthetic and neurotherapeutic devices to restore motor function in individuals with CNS paralysis. Neuroprosthetic devices substitute for lost neuromuscular function; neurotherapeutic devices facilitate recovery of lost neuromuscular function. Current Research Activities Contralaterally controlled functional electrical stimulation (CCFES), a novel neurotherapeutic application of surface…
