Figure 2 Motor function assessment. (A) Basso, Beattie, and Bresnahan scores. ** P<0.01, rTMS/TT vs S-rTMS/Non-TT; # P<0.05, rTMS/TT vs rTMS/Non-TT; & P<0.05, rTMS/TT vs S-rTMS/TT. (B) Grid walking test. The number of foot drops in each group. *** P<0.001, * P<0.05. Twelve rats in each group. At 8 weeks after injury, 1 rat in the S-rTMS/Non-TT group died of abdominal distention. Data presented as mean±standard error of mean. D – day; W,– week; rTMS – repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation; TT – treadmill training; S – sham.
