Study design:Experimental rat model of spinal cord contusion injury (contusion SCI).Objective:The objectives of this study were (1) to characterize the longitudinal changes in rat lower hindlimb muscle morphology following contusion SCI by using magnetic resonance imaging and (2) to determine the therapeutic potential of two types of locomotor training, treadmill and cycling.Setting:University research setting.Methods:After moderate midthoracic contusion SCI, Sprague–Dawley rats were assigned… CONTINUE READING
