Edgerton PhotoDr. V. Reggie Edgerton received his Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology from Michigan State University, Masters from University of Iowa and BS from East Carolina University. He is the Director of the Neuromuscular Research Laboratory and Distinguished Professor of the Departments of Integrative Biology and Physiology, Neurobiology and Neurosurgery and a member of the Brain Research Institute at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).  He has been teaching and conducting research at UCLA for over 45 years. His research is focused on how the neural networks in the lumbar spinal cord of mammals, including humans, regain control of standing, stepping and voluntary control of fine movements after paralysis, and how can these motor functions be modified by chronically imposing activity-dependent interventions after spinal cord injury. Many of these projects are being performed with national and international collaborators and he has published over 470 peer-reviewed papers on topics in this area. Dr. Edgerton is also the President and Chairman of the Board for NeuroRecovery Technologies Inc.
