1. The aims of this study are to determine 1) whether regenerating motor axons have the capacity to form enlarged motor units (MUs) in muscles reinnervated by few motoneurons and 2) whether the type of nerve injury, repair, and/or growth environment affects this capacity. 2. MU innervation ratio (IR) was estimated by measuring isometric unit tetanic force in reinnervated cat medial gastrocnemius muscles 3-16 mo after denervation by either 1) crushing its nerve, 2) transecting the nerve and… CONTINUE READING
