  1. The numbers in parentheses break the totals for each category into rostral and caudal tracer application, respectively. For example, (4/2) indicates 4 animals received rostral tracer and 2 received caudal tracer. Animals that had recovered function were chosen preferentially for rostral tracer application. ET, ependymal tube.
