A computer-controlled electromagnetic spinal cord injury device (ESCID) has been adapted to develop a mouse model of spinal cord contusion injury. In the present study, we have extended this model in C57Bl/6 mice with behavioral and histopathological outcome assessment. Three groups of mice received a laminectomy at the T(9) vertebral level followed by a(More)
Chicken embryos were chronically immobilized by applying a neuromuscular blocking agent, curare, to the chorioallantoic membrane from day 8 through day 16 of incubation to study the effects of a deficit in motor activity on the development of contractile properties of skeletal muscle. Compared with control embryos, spontaneous embryonic motor activity was(More)
Oxygen tension (PO2) measurements were made in the dog spinal cord with a small recessed-tip oxygen microelectrode. The use of vibration and specific marking techniques has allowed the elimination of tissue compression artifacts and the mapping of regional PO2 in the thoracic spinal cord. A symmetrical distribution of PO2 values can be shown for the lateral(More)
