Figure 2: Behavioral and electromyographic assessments confirming establishment of the rat model. (A and B) In the beam-walking test and ladder rung walking task, a > 85% slip rate was observed in the right hindlimb (affected side), compared with that in the left hindlimb (intact side). Data were expressed as the mean ± SEM (n = 10; repeated-measures analysis of variance). ***P < 0.001. (C) Superposed forepaw and hindpaw prints, characteristic of a naïve rat, were presented as a reference. (D) A contralateral detached state was present in rats with an injury to the posteromedial area of posterior limb of the internal capsule. In this case, normal muscular action potentials (E) were replaced with the denervated ones (F).
