The drawing shows potential biologic responses to a spinal cord injury (gray middle). A cortical pyramidal neuron (top) partially retracts from the injury and then extends its axon (dashed line) to an transplanted neural precur- sor, which in turn sends its axon to a motoneuron in the ventral horn. An injured ascending fiber extends through the im- planted milieu to reconnect to a cortical neuron. In response to deafferentation, that cortical neuron had sent out a den- dritic contact to a neighboring neuron (far right). In response to motoneuron denervation in the cord, the cortical cell sprouted a dendritic connection to another spinal mo- toneuron in the ventral horn. One of the implanted neural precursors extended an axon a short distance, but made a con- nection only within the milieu of the transplant.
