An important goal of rehabilitation following spinal cord injury is recovery of locomotor function and muscular strength. In the present studies, we determined whether the beta(2)-agonist, clenbuterol, can improve recovery of locomotor function following spinal cord injury. A model of spinal cord injury was examined in which four graded levels of contusion injury were produced in rats at the level of T10 with a weight-drop device. Locomotor recovery was determined with the Basso, Beattie, and… CONTINUE READING
