Figure 3: Time course of each parameter. (a) BMS score. (b) M1 score. (c) M2 score. (d) Rearing score (RG). (e) Speed. (f) Acceleration. M1 and M2 scores hardly showed a difference between the contusion and transection groups after 1 week, and they gradually decreased despite the animal’s recovery of BMS score. The speed and acceleration showed clear differences among the three groups, especially in the late phase of SCI. *.
