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.
Researchers have developed a technique to make brain controlled prosthetics more precise. A pilot clinical trial of the neuroprosthesis is underway for people with paralysis and ALS.
A newly designed synthetic compound could act as a prototype for a novel class of drugs to treat neurological damage.
Researchers use direct brain control to allow a man paralyzed for five years to walk again.
Researchers reveal a neuroendocrine system reflex may trigger an increased susceptibility to contracting bacterial infections following injuries to the brain or spinal cord.
A new drug could partially relieve paralyzing spinal cord injuries, researchers report.
Researchers restore significant bladder function, through nerve regeneration, in rats with severe spinal cord injuries.
Enhancing mitochondrial transportation and cellular energetics could help promote regeneration and function following spinal cord injury.
