Participants were recruited through an adaptive ski program and included three children with an ASD and one of their parent's.

Performance Of A Repetitive Task By Aged Rats Leads To Median Neuropathy And Spinal Cord Inflammation With Associated Sensorimotor Declines, Melanie B. Elliot, Ann E. Barr, Brian D. Clark, Christine K. Wade, Mary F. Barbe 2010 Thomas Jefferson University

Performance Of A Repetitive Task By Aged Rats Leads To Median Neuropathy And Spinal Cord Inflammation With Associated Sensorimotor Declines, Melanie B. Elliot, Ann E. Barr, Brian D. Clark, Christine K. Wade, Mary F. Barbe

Faculty Scholarship (PT)

Epidemiological studies have demonstrated a relationship between advancing age and susceptibility to risk factors for median neuropathies and musculoskeletal disorders. In this study, we determined if performance of a voluntary reaching task by aged rats induced sensorimotor declines, median nerve dysfunction and increased inflammatory cytokines in peripheral nerves, muscle and spinal cord neurons. Aged (14 mon) rats were trained for 15 min/day for 4 weeks to learn a high repetition, low force (HRLF) task (19 reaches/min; 15% maximum pulling force). Aged task rats performed the task for 2 h/day, 3 days/wk, for 12 weeks (until they ...
