Neurophysiological approaches to chronic pain following spinal cord injury
Pain occurring in patients with spinal cord injury can be classified on clinical grounds into five types: peripheral, central, visceral, mechanical and psychic. An attempt has been made to correlate… Expand

Features of the human spinal cord motor control are described using two spinal cord injury models: (i) the spinal cord completely separated from brain motor structures by accidental injury; (ii) the… Expand
Clinical elements for the neuromuscular stimulation and functional electrical stimulation protocols in the practice of neurorehabilitation.
The physicians and their multidisciplinary teams involved in the clinical practice of neurological rehabilitation have more and more opportunities to apply neuromuscular stimulation (NMS) and… Expand
