Our overall goal is to develop effective, clinically applicable, approaches to restore upper limb function (reach- and-grasp) after chronic contusive cervical spinal cord injury (cSCI). Impairments in upper limb function significantly reduce the quality of life for people with cSCI. Reach-and-grasp actions in animals and humans are largely controlled by the corticospinal tract (CST). We argue that promoting plasticity within the CST may support the recovery of upper limb function after cSCI. Rep...
