Electrophysiological evaluation after spinal cord injury
Grant number: 1042643 | Funding period: 2013 - 2017
Multiple serial physiological recording techniques will be used to assess sensory and motor function for 12 months after spinal cord injury. This detailed information will provide, for the first time, an insight into the changes, both beneficial and deleterious, in the sensory and motor systems over time. Such information may enable changes in the management of people with spinal cord injury to prevent deleterious effects on the nervous system and enhance function.
