Organization of brain and spinal cord locomotor networks in larval lamprey
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
In vertebrates, brain locomotor command systems activate spinal central pattern generators (CPGs) to initiate locomotor behavior. The size and pharmacology of brain command systems are unknown, and the movements that result ...
Neuronal changes underlying altered biophysical properties of reticulospinal neurons following spinal cord injury in the lamprey
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
Following a severe spinal cord injury (SCI), the descending axons of reticulospinal (RS) neurons are damaged, resulting in paralysis below the site of the injury. For higher vertebrates, including humans, RS neurons are ...
