Tadpole nerve regeneration capacity provides clue to treating spinal cord injury

Nagoya University researchers have identified a gene that plays a crucial role in regenerating neurons of African clawed frog tadpoles, which has an unusually high capacity for nerve regeneration. Their study, recently published in the journal iScience, showed that introducing the gene into mice with spinal cord injury (SCI) led to a partial recovery ofContinue reading “Tadpole nerve regeneration capacity provides clue to treating spinal cord injury”

UofL receives $7.8M grant to enhance epidural stimulation technology for individuals with spinal cord injury

By BETTY COFFMAN -MARCH 16, 2021279 Researchers at UofL made news worldwide in 2018 when two people diagnosed with complete spinal cord injuries recovered the ability to walk thanks to experimental use of a therapy known as epidural stimulation. The news gave hope to people living with complete spinal cord injuries, a diagnosis that historicallyContinue reading “UofL receives $7.8M grant to enhance epidural stimulation technology for individuals with spinal cord injury”
