Neurogenesis: Forming Nerves

Recent research suggests that, throughout life, the adult brain retains a limited capacity to make new neurons. This new knowledge has led to a...

New findings on nerve cell proteins show promise for reducing disability

New findings in animals suggest a potential treatment to minimize Disability after spinal cord and other nervous system injuries, say neuroscientists from Wake Forest...

Findings on Nerve Cell Proteins Show Promise for Reducing Disability

New findings in animals suggest a potential treatment to minimize Disability after spinal cord and other nervous system injuries, say neuroscientists. Newswise — New findings...

Current Understanding

To understand how treatment for spinal cord injury can be improved, it is important to understand the normal spinal cord and its functions, how...

Secondary damage

Damage to the spinal cord does not stop with the initial injury, but continues in the hours following trauma. Paradoxically, this delayed, secondary damage...

Stem Cells Found In Adults May Repair Nerves

It used to be considered dogma that a nerve, once injured, could never be repaired. Now, researchers have learned that some nerves, even nerves...

Fountain of Neurons Created

Immortalized stem-like cells could provide a limitless supply of spinal cord and brain replacement parts A method of producing an unlimited supply of human neurons...

How does the spinal cord work?

Neurons (nerve cells) in the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerve send axons (nerve fibers) up and down the spinal cord in spinal...

Spinal cords fixed in tests

With a genetic tweak, scientists have created an unlimited supply of a type of nerve cells found in the spinal cord and have been...

Scientists create human embryos through cloning, extract embryonic stem cells

For the first time, scientists have achievedhuman "therapeutic cloning," creating human embryos through cloning and extracting stem cells that were thenmorphed into other kinds...
