New manuscript available online
Our report describing a novel form of respiratory plasticity induced by activation of phrenic afferents during diaphragm pacing is now available online. A big congrats to my team!
The fundamental hypothesis guiding our work is that respiratory afferents induce spinal plasticity and facilitate remodeling within the respiratory neural network. Our laboratory uses a multi-disciplinary approach including behavioral studies, neurophysiological preparations, and molecular techniques to investigate the functional significance and therapeutic potential of respiratory afferent activation, with the ultimate goal of identifying novel rehabilitative strategies to improve cardiorespiratory control following cervical spinal cord injury
Marquette University is located in historic downtown Milwaukee, WI
