Although recovery from spinal cord injury is generally meager, evidence suggests that step training can improve stepping performance, particularly after neonatal spinal injury. The location and nature of the changes in neural substrates underlying the behavioral improvements are not well understood. We examined the kinematics of stepping performance and cellular and synaptic electrophysiological parameters in ankle extensor motoneurons in nontrained and treadmill-trained rats, all receiving a… CONTINUE READING
