The time course of recovery of locomotor function was examined with kinematic analysis and muscle recordings in larval lampreys 2–32 weeks after rostral spinal cord transection at the level of the third gill (∼10% of body length, BL). Animals began to recover locomotor movements within 2–4 weeks of spinal cord transection, but the amplitude of locomotor(More)
