The feasibility of using polymer-encapsulated PC12 cells to ameliorate the motor deficits in aged rats was evaluated. Spontaneous locomotion and motor coordination was evaluated in young (5-6 month) and aged (24-25 month) rats. Aged animals tested for spontaneous locomotor activity in Digiscan animal activity monitors were found to be hypoactive relative to… CONTINUE READING
