WOW - Mice regain movement after spinal cord injury
Close to a medical breakthrough?!


[link to www.scientificamerican.com]
Previous research had been stepping closer to encouraging neuronal growth—which usually stops after physical maturation. And a 2008 study coauthored by Zhigang He, a neurologist at Children's Hospital Boston, announced success in shutting down a gene that stops neuron cell growth, thus enticing damaged nerves to start growing again. Through that process, the team was able to reestablish a severed optical nerve connection in mice.

A new study, coauthored in part by He and other members of the 2008 team, demonstrates that voluntary movement can be reestablished in mice with spinal cord damage after removing a common enzyme that regulates the neuronal cell growth. The results were published online August 8 in Nature Neuroscience (Scientific American is part of Nature Publishing Group).


...Reestablishing this communication across those broken synapses could be life-changing for the millions of people who live with spinal cord injury across the world...

... "Our discovery points the way toward a potential therapy to induce regeneration of nerve connections following spinal cord injury in people."...

YW...could you imagine being able to fix spinal cord paralyzation injuries!? What a wonderful thing that would be!

Re: WOW - Mice regain movement after spinal cord injury
apologies for being offtopic ...I wanted to let you know SS aparently per trinity I have a changing IP address?? anyways I at times will be able to respond and at other times will receive the ''thanks for not stalking'' page ...due to the IP of the day? hour? min? ...in short I am working on it with trinity....hopefully I will be able to comment on all of the threads I missed....

As to this one Neurosynaptogenesisis is the creation of new articulated pathways in the neural structure....which is interesting in regards cognitive function...for motor function requires much more than neuro but also all of the receptor sites along the way....what would be interesting would be to see if the myelinization of axons could be increased thus increasing neural speed....storage vs. RAM ....

I am going back to working on my IP issues. good find!

myelin sheaths are the mechanism for speeding along messages inside the brain...think of them as lube oil for your brain engine.

national library of medicine definition on myelin sheaths....IE the RAM for your Brain....

I hope this helps.
