Craig Evinger’s research is centered on determining how the nervous system creates movement and to identify nervous system modifications that cause movement disorders. He uses blinking as a simple model system for his investigations since blinks arise from relatively simple neural circuits. He is also currently working on a method called deep brain stimulation, which sends electrodes directly to the portion of the brain disrupted by Parkinson’s and electrically stimulates it.
