Trigger mechanism for recovery after spinal cord injury revealed

After an incomplete spinal cord injury, the body can partially recover basic motor function. So-called muscle spindles and associated sensory circuits back to the spinal cord promote the establishment of novel neuronal connections after injury. This circuit-level mechanism behind the process of motor recovery was elucidated by Silvia Arber's research group at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research and the Biozentrum, University of Basel. Their findings may contribute to designing novel strategies for treatment after spinal cord injuries and have been published in the journal "Cell". Read more
