- Differential joint-specific corticospinal tract projections within the cervical enlargementCurtis O Asante
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. ..
- Systems neurobiology of restorative neurology and future directions for repair of the damaged motor systemsJohn 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...
- Harnessing activity-dependent plasticity to repair the damaged corticospinal tract in an animal model of cerebral palsyJohn 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...
- Cortical control of adaptive locomotion in wild-type mice and mutant mice lacking the ephrin-Eph effector protein alpha2-chimaerinCurtis 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...
- Postnatal refinement of proprioceptive afferents in the cat cervical spinal cordSamit 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..This is likely to be important for the development of adaptive motor control...
- Using motor behavior during an early critical period to restore skilled limb movement after damage to the corticospinal system during developmentKATHLEEN FRIEL
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...
- ACTIVITY REFINES CORTICOSPINAL TERMINATIONSJohn H Martin; Fiscal Year: 2010..Through this understanding we hope to learn how perinatal damage to the CS system, which typically produces cerebral palsy, can be averted. ..
