For both limb muscle reinnervation model and the paw intrinsic muscle reinnervation model, 15 adult male Sprague-Dawley rats weighing 200–250 grams were randomly assigned to the control (n = 5), nerve injury (n = 5), and nerve repair (n = 5) groups. Experiment animals were given access to food and water ad libitum and housed with soft bedding on a 12 h light/dark cycle in a temperature-controlled environment (21 ± 2°C). Rats were handled regularly before any surgical procedures, MR imaging, and behavioral testing, and were sacrificed at week 10 following the behavioral assessment.
