Abstract : In year 3 of our grant, we conducted a series of experiments evaluating the effects of duraplasty onintraparenchymal spinal cord oxygenation, blood flow, and pressure, downstream metabolic response, behavioral recovery as well as histological changes. We ended up repeating our 12-week behavioral recovery study because an earlier study that we performed showed a tremendous (and frankly, amazing) improvement in locomotor function in the duraplasty-treated animals.
