Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) Improves Myelination and Recovery after Nerve Injury
Previously, we demonstrated i) that ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) increases axon diameter and potentiates nerve regeneration in a rat model of transected peripheral nerve and ii) that cholecalciferolExpand

Illusory movements prevent cortical disruption caused by immobilization
We used functional magnetic resonance imaging to investigate whether it is possible to prevent this reorganization by compensating for the lack of actual kinesthetic perception with illusory movements induced by "neuromimetic" proprio-tactile feedback that is artificially delivered during immobilization.
