Table 1 General locomotion is not altered by intestinal inflammation during chronic TBI. Distance traveled and average speed was measured during NOR habituation testing carried out prior to, during, and following DSS administration. All experimental groups performed at similar levels indicating no significant impairment of gross motor function. Data expressed as mean ± s.e.m (n = 31–42 per group pre-DSS; n = 15–21 per group DSS injury/recovery phases). a = p = 0.0001 vs Naïve, b = p = 0.0256 vs Sham, c = p = 0.0001 vs Naïve, d = p = 0.0390 vs Sham. Abbreviations: m meters, m/s meters/second
