A new "spin" on recovery after spinal cord injury

Cell. 2014 Dec 18;159(7):1494-6. doi: 10.1016/j.cell.2014.12.014.


Functional recovery can occur after incomplete spinal cord injury. Takeoka et al. now report that such recovery relies on muscle spindle feedback that is necessary for neuronal circuit remodeling, suggesting novel targets to restore motor functions following spinal cord injuries.
