    Details

    Purpose of this project Spinal cord stimulation has the potential to improve motor function recovery after spinal cord injury. Commonly used approaches include low-intensity, direct current (DC) stimulation applied across multiple segments, electrical transcutaneous (ETC) stimulation, and magnetic transcutaneous stimulation (MTC). Objective: to evaluate and compare the voluntary and reflexive motor performance in the same subjects, including people with and without spinal cord injury, after non-invasive spinal cord stimulation interventions. Comparing two different interventions applied in different experimental sessions and the respective sham stimulation is the goal of this study. corticospinal and spinal motor pathways in paraplegics and in non-injured humans will be tested.
