Recovery of locomotion correlated with axonal regeneration after a complete spinal transection in the eel.

This research has examined the relationship between axonal regeneration and the return of normal movement following complete transection of the spinal cord. We made measurements of tail beat frequency and amplitude of the caudal body wave from video recordings of eels (Anguilla anguilla) swimming in a water tunnel at several speeds. Each eel was then… CONTINUE READING
