The spinal cord is rarely transected after spinal cord injury. Dysfunction of surviving axons, which traverse the site of spinal cord injury, appears to contribute to post-traumatic neurological deficits, although the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. The subpial rim frequently contains thinly myelinated axons which appear to conduct signals abnormally, although it is uncertain whether this truly reflects maladaptive alterations in conduction properties of injured axons during the chronic… CONTINUE READING
