Chemotropic guidance facilitates axonal regeneration and synapse formation after spinal cord injury

<p>Nature Neuroscience 12, 1106 – 1113 (2009)</p> <p>Laura Taylor Alto1, Leif A Havton2, James M Conner1, Edmund R Hollis II1, Armin Blesch1 &amp; Mark H Tuszynski1,3</p> <p>Abstract&nbsp; A principal objective of spinal cord injury (SCI) research is the restoration of axonal connectivity to denervated targets. We tested the hypothesis that chemotropic mechanisms would guide regenerating spinal cord axons to appropriate brainstem targets…</p>
