Exercise promotes recovery after motoneuron injury via hormonal mechanisms.

Chew C, Sengelaub DR (2020) Exercise promotes recovery after motoneuron injury via hormonal mechanisms. Neural Regen Res 15(8):1373-1376. doi: 10.4103/1673-5374.274323

Objective: To describe how exercise is neuroprotective for motoneurons, accelerating axon regeneration following axotomy and attenuating dendritic atrophy following the death of neighboring motoneurons.

Summary: Exercise offers a simple, low barrier-to-entry behavioral intervention which is neuroprotective and pro-regenerative following neural injury.

Usage: Motoneurons innervating the left vastus medialis muscle were selectively killed by intramuscular injection of CTB-SAP (2 μL, 0.1%).
