    The recovery of standing and locomotion after spinal cord injury does not require task-specific training

    Jonathan Harnie et al.
    Restoring locomotion after complete spinal cord injury does not require locomotor training, only the return of sufficient excitability within neurons of the spinal cord.

    Calpain fosters the hyperexcitability of motoneurons after spinal cord injury and leads to spasticity

    Vanessa Plantier et al.
    Calpain is a promising therapeutic target to reduce spasticity after a spinal cord injury.

    BMPs direct sensory interneuron identity in the developing spinal cord using signal-specific not morphogenic activities

    Madeline G Andrews et al.
    Members of the BMP family of growth factors act as a reiterative code of distinct activities to direct the identities of different classes of sensory neurons in the spinal cord.

    Non-canonical Hedgehog signaling regulates spinal cord and muscle regeneration in Xenopus laevis larvae

    Andrew M Hamilton et al.
    Unlike in early embryonic development, injured spinal cord and muscle in Xenopus laevis larvae recruit non-canonical Hedgehog signaling essential for their regeneration, while repressing Gli transcriptional activity.

    Long ascending propriospinal neurons provide flexible, context-specific control of interlimb coordination

    Amanda M Pocratsky et al.
    Conditional silencing of long ascending propriospinal neurons disrupts interlimb coordination of the fore and hindlimb pairs, but in a highly context-specific manner.

    Radial glia regulate vascular patterning around the developing spinal cord

    Ryota L Matsuoka et al.
    Identification of a novel role for central nervous system-resident progenitors in the patterning of the vascular network around the developing spinal cord.

    Notch signalling maintains Hedgehog responsiveness via a Gli-dependent mechanism during spinal cord patterning in zebrafish

    Craig T Jacobs, Peng Huang
    Genetic analyses combining photoconvertible cell signalling reporters with gain- and loss-of function manipulations reveal a novel role for Notch signalling in controlling Hedgehog response in neural progenitor cells.

    Co-targeting myelin inhibitors and CSPGs markedly enhances regeneration of GDNF-stimulated, but not conditioning-lesioned, sensory axons into the spinal cord

    Jinbin Zhai et al.
    Myelin-associated inhibitors and chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans are not the primary mechanism stopping sensory axons regenerating into the spinal cord, although their removal can markedly enhance regeneration when combined with an intervention that elevates axon growth capacity sufficiently robustly.

    Closed-loop neuromodulation restores network connectivity and motor control after spinal cord injury

    Patrick D Ganzer et al.
    Precisely-timed bursts of closed-loop vagus nerve stimulation during rehabilitation restore neural connectivity and substantially improve recovery of motor function after SCI.

    Spinal cord precursors utilize neural crest cell mechanisms to generate hybrid peripheral myelinating glia

    Laura Fontenas, Sarah Kucenas
    Motor exit point (MEP) glia utilize mechanisms most commonly attributed to neural crest cells for their development from spinal cord precursors.
