Neuroscience Poster Session

, Spinal Cord Injury in Rats and Humans

Michel Ladouceur

Hi Dr Metz,

Thank you for your nice poster. I hope you are enjoying the meeting. I have a question regarding the locomotor rating scale you are using for the rats. My question is what are the items that are scored? Since it is well known that spinalised rats can recover locomotion on a treadmill fairly rapidly. Is it possible that the BBB motor score uses locomotor tasks involving a greater integration between supraspinal structures and locomotor related centers in the spinal cord.

Thank you for your answer
