Researchers have identified structural 'footprints' that allow certain virus vectors reach the brain easily.
Neuroimaging study finds higher rates of mouth movements in unborn babies of mothers who smoke.
Severed axonal segments signal to Schwann cells to begin actin sphere formation and axon disintegration. If the process is disrupted, axon disintegration is slowed and axon fragments impair nerve regeneration.
Enhancing mitochondrial transportation and cellular energetics could help promote regeneration and function following spinal cord injury.
Researchers confirm the mental fogginess produced as a result of taking the cancer drug tamoxifen, is real. They have also discovered an existing drug compound which appears to counteract the effects of this medication.
Researchers have discovered a molecule secreted by cells in the spinal cord that help guide axons during the development of the central nervous system.
Researchers have successfully used stem cell therapy to regenerate neurons in damaged areas of zebra fish spinal cords. The treatment helped to restore movement following SCI. The findings raise the possibility of developing new treatments for humans suffering paralysis as a result of spinal cord injury.
Researchers have developed a novel 3D printed scaffolding that mimics natural anatomy and boost stem cell treatment for spinal cord repair. While the initial scaffolds have been designed for rat models of SCI, researchers report the approach is scalable to humans.
