SCI Model System Research Recently Featured in Symposium and Publications

Model system researchers from Midwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury Care System (MRSCICS) presented Physical Interventions to Maximize Motor Recovery following Spinal Cord Injury at the Fourth Annual Spinal Cord Injury Symposium: Contemporary Trends in Spinal Cord Injury Management. The conference was held in Baltimore, MD on June 16, 2014. In addition, MRSCICS work appeared in four publications:

  • “Potential Feasibility of High Intensity, Variable Stepping Practice in Individuals Across Neurological Disorders”, Consortium for Multiple Sclerosis Centers, Annual Conference, Dallas, TX, May 2014 

  • Kim HE, Thompson CK, Hornby TG. Muscle activation varies with contraction mode in human spinal cord injury. Muscle Nerve. 2014 May 13. doi: 10.1002/mus.24285. [Epub ahead of print] PMID: 24825184. Access the abstract here

  • Leech KA, Kinnaird CR, Hornby TG. Effects of serotonergic medications on locomotor performance in humans with incomplete spinal cord injury. J Neurotrauma. 2014 Apr 17. [Epub ahead of print] Access the abstract here

  • Jayaraman A, Thompson CK, Rymer WZ, Hornby TG. Short-term maximal-intensity resistance training increases volitional function and strength in chronic incomplete spinal cord injury: a pilot study. J Neurol Phys Ther. 2013 Sep;37(3):112-7. PMID: 23673372. Access the abstract here.
