Abstract

Reappearance of sympathetic skin response (SSR) below lesion is reported in a patient with a complete thoracic-9 spinal cord injury 6months following injury. SSR was elicited by electrical stimulation of supraorbital nerve (SON) and pudendal nerve (PN). SON stimulation induced SSRs only in the hand. SSRs were initially absent below the level of SCI but reappeared only with PN stimulation. This case suggests that 6months following a complete lesion, the isolated spinal cord can generate a SSR. Possible underlying mechanisms and implications for autonomic plasticity below spinal lesion are discussed in view of the literature.

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.
