- •Structural magnetic resonance imaging of spinal cord damage is negatively correlated with walking output in people with motor incomplete spinal cord injury.
- •Lateral corticospinal tract damage is related to specific lower extremity motor deficits, in an ipsilesional manner, in these participants.
