Trigger mechanism for recovery after spinal cord injury identified.

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 chord promote the establishment of novel neuronal connections after injury. This circuit-level mechanism behind the process of motor recovery was identified by researchers from the University of Basel, EPFL and the Friedrich Miescher Institute. Their findings
