Study Measures Neural Signaling in Spinal Cord, Technique Promising Researchers Say

In a recent news release, researchers state that they have achieved a conclusive, noninvasive measurement of neural signaling in the spinal cord of healthy human volunteers; the technique may reportedly help pave the way to assisting patients in recovering from SCIs and other disorders impacting spinal cord function, such as MS.


Stem Cells Grafted Into Rat Spinal Cords Show Growth, Study Says

Recent study results indicate neurons derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) and grafted into rats post-spinal cord injury (SCI) produced cells with tens of thousands of axons, extending virtually the entire length of the animals’ central nervous system.
