Modeling morphological changes in spinal motoneurons following spinal cord injury to explore changes in electrical behavior

Abstract

Background Following a contusion injury to the spinal cord (SCI), motoneurons below the level of injury undergo significant morphological and behavioral changes. Compared with uninjured controls, SCI motoneurons have a larger soma, fewer and thicker primary dendrites, and less dendritic branching [1]. Behaviorally, SCI motoneurons are more excitable and… (More)
