Recovery of voluntary motor function after incomplete spinal cord injuries is attributed to a variety of physiological mechanisms, such as resolution of conduction block in injured axons, and neuroplasticity mechanisms in spared axons. To better understand these recovery mechanisms, we have examined motor recovery in one type of incomplete cord injury, the Brown-Sequard Syndrome. This syndrome is observed in patients with unilateral injury of the spinal cord and is manifested as asymmetric… CONTINUE READING
