A joint research study between Mayo Clinic and UCLA has yielded results, showing that the networks of neurons below a spinal cord injury still can function after paralysis. On the Mayo Clinic Radio podcast, co-principal investigators, Dr. Kendall Lee, neurosurgeon and director of Mayo Clinic's Neural Engineering Laboratories, and Dr. Kristin Zhao, director of Mayo Clinic’s Assistive and Restorative Technology Laboratory, explain the spinal cord stimulation research from the neurosurgery and rehabilitation perspectives. Megan Gill, a Mayo Clinic physical therapist, also joins the discussion. Also on the program, Kimberly Van Rooy, director of volunteers at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, highlights all the jobs done by Mayo Clinic volunteers.
