Precise assessment of motor deficits after traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) in rodents is crucial for understanding the mechanisms of functional recovery and testing therapeutic approaches. Here we analyzed the applicability to a rat SCI model of an objective approach, the single-frame motion analysis, created and used for functional analysis in mice.(More)
UNLABELLED Following spinal cord injury (SCI), loss of spinal and supraspinal control results in desynchronisation of detrusor vesicae (parasympathicus) and external urethral sphincter (sympathicus) activity. Despite recovery of lower urinary tract function being a high priority in patients with SCI, effective treatment options are unavailable largely(More)
Whole-body vibration (WBV) is a relatively novel form of exercise used to improve neuromuscular performance in healthy individuals. Its usefulness as a therapy for patients with neurological disorders, in particular spinal cord injury (SCI), has received little attention in clinical settings and, surprisingly, even less in animal SCI models. We performed(More)
