Neuroprotective effects of exercise on the morphology of somatic motoneurons following the death of neighboring motoneurons.

Chew C, Sengelaub DR (2019) Neuroprotective effects of exercise on the morphology of somatic motoneurons following the death of neighboring motoneurons. Neurorehabil Neural Repair 33(8):656-667. doi: 10.1177/1545968319860485

Objective: To explore whether exercise shows the same neuroprotective effect on induced dendritic atrophy as that seen with androgen treatment.

Summary: Exercise following neural injury exerts a protective effect on motoneuron dendrites comparable to that seen with exogenous androgen treatment.

Usage: Motoneurons innervating the left vastus medialis muscle were selectively killed by intramuscular injection of CTB-SAP (2 μL, 0.1%). Saporin injection reduced the weight of the vastus medialis muscle; exercise had no effect on muscle weight.
