Title - Studies of Urinary Dysfunction After Spinal Cord Injury In Vivo and In Vitro

Speaker - Dr. Jonathan Carp
New York State Department of Health/NY University at Albany

About three out of every four people with spinal cord injury (SCI) have problems with urinary control; those affected largely consider recovery of bowel and bladder function more desirable than that of locomotion.

This talk describes basic research into SCI-induced urinary dysfunction in vivo using freely-moving animals and in vitro using motoneuron recordings from spinal slices. The results provide new insights into injury-induced spinal cord plasticity.

This newly-developed freely-moving animal model also offers opportunities for evaluating novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of one of the most common, serious, and yet under-studied complications of SCI.

Join us before for coffee and sweets.
