Functional reorganization in somatosensory cortical areas 3b and 1 of adult monkeys after median nerve repair: possible relationships to sensory recovery in humans

The results suggest that nerve regeneration reestablishes the cortical capacity to process tactile information from reinnervated skin via a prolonged reorganizational process that appears dependent on peripheral and central factors.

Motoneuron adaptability to new motor tasks following two types of facial-facial anastomosis in cats.

Adult mammal facial premotor circuits maintain their motor programmes when motoneurons are induced to reinnervate a foreign muscle, or even a new set of muscle fibres.

The basic science of optic nerve regeneration

Known survival and regenerative mechanisms in mammals are summarized, including specific signaling pathways, key transcription factors, and reprogramming genes, as well as their interactions with myeloid and glial cell populations in the retina and optic nerve that affect survival and regeneration.

It will be analyzed in detail that the orthopedic surgeon operated without sufficient knowledge in human repair-neurophysiology, necessary especially in spinal cord injury, to make the spinal Cord injury patient Nefeli walk again.

Differential effects of attentional focus strategies during long-term resistance training

The findings lend support to the use of a mind–muscle connection to enhance muscle hypertrophy by using an internal versus external focus of attention during resistance training on muscular adaptations.

Transcriptional Architecture of Synaptic Communication Delineates Cortical GABAergic Neuron Identity

It is discovered that cardinal GABAergic neuron types are delineated by a transcriptional architecture that encodes their synaptic communication patterns, and this molecular genetic framework of neuronal identity integrates cell phenotypes along multiple axes and provides a foundation for discovering and classifying neuron types.

Eric Lenneberg and Motor Control

I began my graduate career in 1970. I was somewhat familiar with Eric Lenneberg, having met him during an event for faculty in Psychology and Neuroscience—the fields in which I was interested at the

Musculotendon adaptations and preservation of spinal reflex pathways following agonist‐to‐antagonist tendon transfer

It is proposed that musculotendon plasticity and lack of spinal reflex circuitry reorganization could limit functional outcomes after tendon transfer surgery, and surgeons should consider potential consequences of the transferred muscle's intermuscular spinal circuit actions.

Though this discussion is limited to facial paralysis of traumatic origin in order to exclude the more controversial subject of Bell's palsy, it is not out of place to note that the lines of treatment suitable for traumatic palsy are applicable also to the rare cases where the continuity of the facial nerve has been lost from the erosion of an intratemporal epidermoid, or from a perineural fibroblastoma occurring in the neighbourhood of the fallopian canal.
