Hyperreflexia is a common feature of spinal cord injury (SCI), and changes in reflex excitability have been reported to be useful in assessing treatments in animal models of cord damage. However, spinal reflexes are known to be dependent on anesthetic level. As a preliminary to its use in SCI, the excitability of the Hoffman reflex (H reflex) has been assessed under several commonly used anesthetics. The H reflex was recorded in the distal foot muscles (dorsal interossei) of adult rats, while… CONTINUE READING
