A new study reveals how Schwann cells in the PNS degrade myelin following nerve injury.
Researchers demonstrate the regenerative dynamics of CCL2.
Researchers have successfully restored the ability to walk in mice paralyzed as a result of spinal cord injuries with the help of a small molecular compound.
The researchers claim Taxol was effective in promoting regeneration of injured spinal cord nerve cells in rats following spinal cord lesions. Only a few weeks following the spinal cord lesions and Taxol application, rats showed significant improvement in movements.
A new study reports a single injection of human neural stem cells produce neuronal regeneration and improved the function and mobility of rats impaired by acute spinal cord injuries.
Manipulating the genes of the Drosophila fruit fly to promote the growth of one part of a neuron simultaneously stunts the growth of the other part, new research suggests.
Researchers have successfully rejuvenated stem cells in the brains of aging mice. The study reports the rejuvenated stem cells help improve regeneration of injured or diseased brain areas.
Researchers have identified a master gene, HIF-1alpha, is involved in orchestrating the regrowth of damaged peripheral nerves.
Known for successfully transplanting a bioengineered stem cell-based trachea, surgeon Paolo Macchiarini plans to use his technique to recreate more complex tissue. He has recently made attempts to regenerate brain tissue in rats and mice.
Researchers mobilize the brain's native stem cells to replenish medium spiny neurons which are lost in Huntington's disease.
