BACKGROUND Few studies in humans have assessed the ability of Ia afferent and antidromic motor volleys to activate motoneurons during spinal shock. Hence, little is known about the excitability state of the spinal motoneuron pool after acute spinal cord injury (SCI) in humans. METHODS In 14 patients with acute SCI involving anatomic levels T10 and above, we performed clinical and electrophysiologic studies early after injury (within 24 hours in seven subjects) and on day 10, 20, and 30… CONTINUE READING
