Abstract:

Our main goals in this first year of our proposal was to get the required approvals from IACUC and ACURO to conduct the proposed studies, set-up the hypoxia device from Therapeutiq LLC for which money was requested and granted, get familiarized with this new device, and conduct the first study as part of our overall investigation ofthe role of increased extrinsic and intrinsic axon plasticity on AIHtraining-mediated functional recovery. We haveaccomplished all of these goals successfully in this first year. The obtained in vivo results show that the frequencyof hypoxia treatment affects aspects of some forelimb function in rats with a chronic cervical contusion. The resultshave been presented at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in October 2019.
