Abstract : Evidence suggests that functional electrical stimulation (FES) can improve the function of the central nervous system (CNS) after injury or disease. Using FES-based therapies to treat spinal cord injured patients in our clinic, we have observed neurological and physical improvements. Investigations in our basic science research laboratory address the mechanisms by which FES promotes the cellular and molecular CNS regeneration that forms the foundations of this recovery..
