Following spinal cord injury (SCI), exaggerated reflexes and muscle tone emerge that contribute to a general spastic syndrome in humans. At present, the underlying mechanisms involved with the development of spasticity following traumatic spinal cord injury, especially with regard to axial musculature, remains unclear. The purpose of the present study was to examine the temporal changes in sacrocaudal motoneuronal morphology following complete transection of the sacral spinal cord and to… CONTINUE READING
