BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Exercise and rehabilitative training each have been implicated in the promotion of restorative neural plasticity after cerebral injury. Because motor skill training induces synaptic plasticity and exercise increases plasticity-related proteins, we asked if exercise could improve the efficacy of training on a skilled motor task after focal cortical lesions. METHODS Female young and middle-aged rats were trained on the single-pellet retrieval task and received unilateral… CONTINUE READING
