Complete Spinal Cord Injured Subjects
Patients with no motor scores in their legs and suffering a complete spinal cord injury.
Incomplete Spinal Cord Injured Subjects
Patient with some motor preservation below the injury and suffering an incomplete spinal cord injury.
- Cutaneomuscular Reflex Responses [ Time Frame: Change after drug intake at baseline, 30minutes, 60minutes, 90minutes and 120minutes ]Tibialis anterior reflex responses evoked by stimulation of the medial arch of the foot will be measured before and after drug administration.
- Paired motor unit recordings [ Time Frame: Change at baseline and 30, 60, 90 and 120min after drug intake ]We obtain paired motor unit recordings to determine changes in neuronal excitability after drug intake in incomplete spinal-cord injured subjects only.
- Blood pressure and Heart rate [ Time Frame: Change at baseline and 30, 60, 90, 120 minutes after drug intake ]We measure blood pressure and heart rate to determine the safety of the drug during the experiment and whether we can continue safely.
