Modulation of dendritic spine remodeling in the motor cortex following spinal cord injury: effects of environmental enrichment and combinatorial treatment with transplants and neurotrophin-3.

Abstract

Incomplete spinal cord injury (SCI) elicits structural plasticity of the spared motor system, including the motor cortex, which may underlie some of the spontaneous recovery of motor function seen after injury. Promoting structural plasticity may become an important component of future strategies to improve functional outcomes. We have recently observed… (More)
