This Neural Implant Accesses Your Brain Through the Jugular Vein

The brain-computer interface lets paralyzed people type using their thoughts. Brain-Computer Interface For the first time, doctors are preparing to test a brain-computer interface that can be implanted onto a human brain, no open surgery required. The...

Salamander gene partnerships could help spinal cord regeneration

Gene partnerships found in salamander could give insights into how spinal cord injuries and neurodegenerative conditions could be better treated. Scientists have identified certain gene partnerships that promote the regeneration of spinal cords. Researchers at the...

Dr Jerry Silver – Spinal Cord Damage and Emerging Treatments

Injuries to the spinal cord can cause permanent paralysis and even lead to death, with little to no hope of regaining lost functions once the trauma has occurred. Dr Jerry Silver and his team at...

University of Calgary studying relationships built during spinal cord injury rehab

A new University of Calgary study looks to understand the relationship between those who survive spinal injuries and the people who care for them. The University of Calgary is conducting a new study that takes...

Urinary bacteria in spinal cord injury cases may tip balance toward UTIs

The fallout from spinal cord injury doesn’t end with loss of mobility: Patients can have a range of other issues resulting from this complex problem, including loss of bladder control that can lead to...

Sleep-Disordered Breathing: Imposing Challenges in Spinal Cord Injury

Patients with spinal cord injury or disease (SCI/D) are 3 to 4 times more likely to have sleep disordered breathing (SDB) than individuals in the general population. The prevalence of SDB — both central...
Spinal injuries throw body clocks off-schedule

Spinal injuries throw body clocks off-schedule, new study shows

In the hours and days following a spinal cord injury, the gears that control the body’s internal clocks fall profoundly out of sync, impacting body temperature, hormone fluctuation, immunity and the timing of a...

Case Western Reserve Researchers Restore Breathing and Partial Forelimb Function in Rats with Chronic...

Promising results provide hope for humans suffering from chronic paralysis Millions of people worldwide are living with chronic spinal cord injuries, with 250,000 to 500,000 new cases each year—most from vehicle crashes or falls. The...

Immune cells could hold key to therapies for spinal cord injuries

Fresh insights into how Zebrafish repair their damaged nerve connections could aid the development of therapies for people with spinal cord injuries. Scientists have found the immune system plays a key role in helping Zebrafish...

Neuroscientists restore significant bladder control to 5 men with spinal cord injuries

In UCLA study, magnetic stimulation of lower spine eliminates need for catheter for up to 4 weeks More than 80 percent of the 250,000 Americans living with a spinal cord injury lose the ability to...
