Abstract

The recovery of motor functions after a spinal cord injury (SCI) can be assessed at the domain of body-functions and structures and activities. As there is no gold standard for quantifying motor functions, the recovery depends strongly on the assessment applied. After a motor complete SCI, the improvement in activities of daily life is larger as would be expected from the increase in muscle strength alone. After a motor incomplete SCI, the (prolonged) latency of the motor evoked potential remains stable, while considerable improvements in muscle strength, walking capacity and independence can be observed. Such functional recovery is based on compensational mechanisms and neuroplasticity.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
