High cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) interrupts bulbospinal respiratory pathways innervating phrenic motoneurons, and induces an inactivation of phrenic nerves (PN) and diaphragm. We have previously shown that the ipsilateral (ipsi) PN was inactivated following a lateral C2 SCI, but was spontaneously partially reactivated 7 days post-SCI. This phrenic reactivation depended on contralateral (contra) descending pathways, located laterally, that cross the spinal midline. We analysed here whether… CONTINUE READING
