This study compares heart rate, blood pressure, blood flow in the brain and body, and thinking abilities among individuals with spinal cord injury and healthy age-matched control subjects who do not have a spinal cord injury. The results will help guide future studies aimed at improving health, thinking, and longevity in the SCI population.
Participants with SCI:
- Aged 50-75
- Level of injury is between C1-T12.
- Have an AIS grade of A, B, or C.
- Injury occurred more than 1 year ago.
Participants receive $100 for study visit 1. Participants who take part in visit 2, the MRI/fMRI session, receive an additional $50.
