- The transformation of synaptic to system plasticity in motor output from the sacral cord of the adult mouseMingchen C Jiang
Department of Physiology, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois
J Neurophysiol 114:1987-2004. 2015..These results provide insight on the roles of plasticity in the monosynaptic and polysynaptic inputs converging on the same MN pool to overall motor plasticity. ..
- Progressive changes in synaptic inputs to motoneurons in adult sacral spinal cord of a mouse model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosisMingchen Jiang
Department of Physiology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, Illinois 60611, USA
J Neurosci 29:15031-8. 2009..These data suggest that although short-latency sensory input does not increase as symptoms develop, interneuron activity does increase and may contribute to excitotoxicity...
