Neuron Transplant May Avert Epilepsy Following Brain Injury

A new cell therapy enhanced memory and prevented seizures in mice after traumatic brain injury, researchers from the University of California, Irvine report[1]. The researchers transplanted embryonic progenitor cells capable of generating inhibitory interneurons, a specific type of nerve cell that controls the activity of brain circuits, into the brains of mice with traumatic brain […]

Researchers Identify Key Proteins For The Repair Of Nerve Fibers

A group of proteins that help to regenerate damaged nerve cells has been identified by scientists at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE). It is commonly accepted that neurons of the central nervous system shut down their ability to grow when they no longer need it; this occurs normally after they have found their […]

Edible Seaweed Can Be Used To Grow Blood Vessels In The Body

When we have small wounds on our skin or muscles they can usually heal by themselves. But in deeper wounds – such as those in diabetic patients or in muscle tissue after a heart attack – repair is more difficult. These sorts of issues often require more serious treatments, and may eventually need amputation or […]

Regenerating Axons Across Complete Spinal Cord Injury

In a collaboration led by EPFL (Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) in Switzerland and UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles) in the USA, scientists have now understood the underlying biological mechanisms required for severed nerve fibers to regenerate across complete spinal cord injury, bridging that gap in mice and rats for the first time.
