Does elimination of afferent input modify the changes in rat motoneurone properties that occur following chronic spinal cord transection?


The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of 6-8 weeks of chronic spinal cord isolation (SI, removal of descending, ascending and afferent inputs), compared with the same duration of spinal cord transection (ST, removal of descending input only) on hindlimb motoneurone biophysical properties. Adult female Sprague-Dawley rats were placed into… (More)
