Spinal cord injury (SCI) is usually traumatic in nature and caused by laceration to the spinal cord, resulting in a loss of motor and sensory function as well as other devastating consequences such as pain and psychological distress (e.g. depression). There is also evidence for impairment in cognitive function and changes in neurophysiological measures such as brain activity in SCI. A better understanding of cognitive function deficits and brain activity changes would be valuable so as to improve SCI rehabilitation.
