Neuroscience Collaborative Center

Cardiovascular & Respiratory Laboratory

This laboratory studies the functional impairment of respiratory and cardiovascular systems after spinal cord injury and the effects of new rehabilitative strategies including locomotor training, respiratory muscle training and epidural stimulation of spinal cord. Read more...

Spinal Cord & Brain Injury Research

Overall goals are to understand the physiology and plasticity of the sensorimotor system in health and in patients with spinal cord and brain injury and to use that knowledge to develop new surrogate markers of recovery, new methods of injury prognostication and new therapies for spinal cord and brain injury.

Epidural Stimulation

Epidural Stimulation is an in vivo stimulus method utilizing an implanted electrode array to encourage the body’s use of its inherent nerve pathways to transfer an electrical current to targeted muscle(s). This electrode array is surgically implanted along the relevant section of spinal cord. The electrical current from the array “awakens” the circuitry in the spinal column, enabling the body to acknowledge and possibly respond to sensory input that it was previously disregarding.

Community Fitness Wellness Facility

Frazier Rehab’s Community Fitness facility provides individuals living in our local community and those living out of state access to affordable and effective activity-based exercise in order for them to be ‘fit for life’. Read more...

Human Locomotion Research Center

The Center's primary research aim is to understand neural mechanisms responsible for human locomotion and the level of plasticity after neurologic injury. The primary focus is to study the plasticity of the human lumbosacral spinal cord in individuals with spinal cord injury during locomotor training and/or with epidural stimulation. Read more...
