    Yes, initial studies were done on acute animals. This presentation however was about chronic model experiment updates. During the presentation he updated those at W2W on the (chronic 2 months) contusive injury model and efforts to build a bridge across the lesion. He also discussed a pilot study of (6 months chronic) contusive animals. He briefly mentioned collaborative chronic work on the respiratory system after hemisection lesion at C2 up to (1.5 years chronic) after injury.

    Why is a video of Harkema's patients included in this story?

    Because the media is pretty reckless in their reporting?
