Welcome To The Cajigas Lab
The Cajigas lab is a translational neurosurgery research laboratory interested in addressing clinical knowledge and treatment gaps in the fields of movement disorders, epilepsy, and pain. The lab utilizes computational, engineering, and statistical methods to analyze electrophysiological data to assist with surgical planning, develop of novel neurologic targets for neuromodulation, and understand the neural control of movement with the goals of restoring function after neurologic injury.
Here you can some of our work in action. Our patient was a featured story for his local news outlet as they showed him driving a racecar using his thoughts. With our implants he was able to control the steering with adjusting his head position and controlled the throttle and brakes all with just thinking about speeding up or slowing down.
