Introduction: Spinal cord injury (SCI) may cause functional changes at various levels in central and peripheral nervous systems. One of these changes is increased excitability above the lesion such as enhanced auditory startle responses (ASR). Startle response may also be obtained after somatosensory stimulus (startle reflex to somatosensory stimuli, SSS). In this study, we investigated changes of both ASR and SSS in SCI.
