Research Interests

Dr. Rejc studies the effects of spinal cord injury, disuse, aging, and physical exercise on the human neuromuscular system. For the past 10 years, his research has been primarily focused on the recovery of motor function after severe spinal cord injury using spinal cord epidural stimulation and activity-based training. He has led research projects and experimental sessions aimed at investigating the effects of peripheral sensory information, activity-based training paradigms, and spinal cord stimulation parameters on the recovery of standing postural control and lower- limb motor function in people with complete paralysis.
