    Department of Physiology, Pharmacology, and Neuroscience, City College of the City University of New York, New York, New York, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 8:e74454. 2013
    ..Our findings show a surprising fractionation of CST terminations in the caudal cervical enlargement that may be organized to engage different spinal premotor circuits for distal and proximal joint control. ..

    John H Martin
    Department of Physiology, Pharmacology, and Neuroscience, City College of the City University of New York, NY 10031, USA
    Clin Neurol Neurosurg 114:515-23. 2012
    ..I discuss that we can see on the near horizon, many different strategies for repairing motor systems connections after injury...

    John H Martin
    Department of Physiology, Pharmacology, and Neuroscience, City College of City University of New York, NY 10031, USA
    Dev Med Child Neurol 53:9-13. 2011
    ..If this is so, targeted activation of the spared CST might interrupt this process and lead to functional improvement...
  4. pmc Cortical control of adaptive locomotion in wild-type mice and mutant mice lacking the ephrin-Eph effector protein alpha2-chimaerin
    Curtis Oware Asante
    Department of Neuroscience, Columbia University, New York, New York, USA
    J Neurophysiol 104:3189-202. 2010
    ..Our findings also stress the importance of subcortical control during adaptive locomotion because key features of the trajectory remained largely intact after M1 ablation...

    Samit Chakrabarty
    Department of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience, City College of the City University of New York, 160 Convent Avenue, New York, NY 10031, USA
    Eur J Neurosci 33:1656-66. 2011

    Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University, New York, New York 10032, USA
    J Neurosci 32:9265-76. 2012
    ..Restraint alone only restored CST connectivity. Our findings stress the need to reestablish the integrated functions of the CS system at multiple hierarchical levels in restoring skilled motor function after developmental injury...
