Article title: Recovery of locomotion in cats after severe contusion of the low thoracic spinal cord

Authors: Hugo Delivet-Mongrain, Melvin Dea, Jean-Pierre Gossard, Serge Rossignol

From the authors: “The main findings of this study show that after a very large damage following a spinal contusion at a low thoracic level, most cats can regain a voluntary quadrupedal locomotion and that there was a clear contribution of the spinal cord to the complex process of functional recovery.” 

This study is highlighted as one of May's "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
