Previous work from this laboratory has described a rat spinal cord injury (SCI) model in which the mid-thoracic spinal cord is subjected to a single rapid and calibrated displacement at the site of a dorsal laminectomy. Injury is initiated at the tip of a vertical shaft driven by an electromagnetic shaker. Transducers arranged in series with the shaft record the patterns of displacement and force during the impact sequence. In the present study, this device and the relevant surgical procedures… CONTINUE READING
