Impact of glutamatergic and serotonergic neurotransmission on diaphragm muscle activity after cervical spinal hemisection.


PMID 28659464

Abstract

Incomplete cervical spinal cord hemisection at C2 (SH) disrupts descending excitatory drive to phrenic motoneurons, paralyzing the ipsilateral diaphragm muscle. Spontaneous recovery over time is associated with increased phrenic motoneuron expression of glutamatergic
