A research group at Hiroshima University observed a potential new target for chronic pain treatment. Further research using this receptor could lead to new, more effective drugs to use in pain-relieving treatment for chronic pain.
Neuralstem has released a new report detailing positive results for stem cell treatments. Initial findings show that not only do implanted human spinal cord-derived stem cells survive, but also differentiate into neurons in rats brains affected by strokes. This finding could potentially provide new therapies for treating strokes.
According to researchers, bodily responses to pain are controlled by a neural pathway that involves heightened activity in the spinal cord and two parts of the brain-stem.
Researchers claim to have decoded the spinal cord activation patterns for walking.
Activating specific spinal cord neurons can reduce pain and itching, a new study reports.
Every year, millions of people contend with lower back and neck discomfort. With intent to ease their pain, Cornell University...

Epidural stimulation has helped improve some of the 'hidden' effects, such as abnormal blood pressure and bladder dysfunction, in a patient with spinal cord injury.
Proprioception feedback of a robotic arm helped improve the performance of monkeys using brain machine interfaces to control a computer cursor. When the monkeys were fit with exoskeletons that provided arm movements synchronized with the cursor movement, control of the cursor improved by 40%.
