What research brings spinal cord-injured patients closer to a cure?
What research brings spinal cord-injured patients closer to a cure? Spinal cord repair focuses on finding ways to make axons regrow and connect properly, replace damaged neurons, protect surviving neurons from further injury and retrain neural circuits to repair body functions.
The Magic Touch
The Magic Touch The “ nano wrap ” that is being developed to be fitted around an amputee’s upper arm nerve bundle is the ambitious other part of the Smarthand’s robotic hand project.
A rescue for spinal cord injuries?
A rescue for spinal cord injuries? Spinal cord injuries cause myelopathy or damage to white matter or myelinated fiber tracts that carry signals to and from the brain. It also damages gray matter in the central part of the spine, causing segmental losses of interneurons and motorneurons.
Tackling Paraplegia
Tackling Paraplegia Reconstructing the neuronal circuitry of a damaged spine looks like a much closer goal now.
