Caption: A: This graphic shows the events and mechanisms involved in neurorepair leading to functional recovery by post injury treatment with GSNO and exercise in a rat model of experimental stroke. B: Walking time on a rotating rod is significantly increased with time in exercise and GSNO-treated groups compared with stroke group. However, combination group (exercise+GSNO) shows improved walking time compared with GSNO or exercise group. Sham group (operated without inducing stroke) treated with saline does not show walking deficits.
