Neuromodulation & Recovery Lab
Dr. Sayenko is Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and a member of the Center for Neuroregeneration at Houston Methodist. His areas of expertise include stroke, neuroscience, neuromodulation and spinal cord injury. His research is focused on the developing neuromodulatory strategies to promote functional recovery and mobility after neuromuscular disorders and injuries, including stroke and spinal cord injury. The lab employs a wide variety of approaches and techniques to their research, which includes epidural and transcutaneous spinal stimulation, transcranial magnetic stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation, as well as electromyography, kinematic analysis, posturography, and neuroimaging. Within the Center for Neuroregeneration, his research group is collaborating on studies using preclinical models that focus on regrowth and reorganization of injured neural circuits.
