Complete transection of the spinal cord causes pronounced decrease in the number of VAChT-positive boutons on the soma of the soleus motoneurons but not on tibialis anterior motoneurons. This distinct effect points to different functional states of the ankle extensor and flexor muscles as a possible source of activity-dependent signaling regulating this input. Importantly, locomotor training causes an increase of the VAChT-positive boutons reducing their deficit on soleus motoneurons.
