Boosting Nerve Regeneration in Spinal Cord Injury with Axons

Published: October 19, 2015

Olfactory Mucosa Cells in Spinal Cord Injury Spinal cord injury regeneration may be possible harnessing the brain repair mechanism known as axons, according to findings published in The Journal of Neuroscience.

Researchers from University of South Carolina examined RNA function in order to test the ability of axons to aid regeneration of nerves. The team set out to find a way to bridge what they called the “regenerative gap” between the peripheral nervous system and the central nervous system.
