We have shown previously that mats made from the glycoprotein fibronectin are permissive for axonal growth when implanted into the injured spinal cord. Recent evidence has indicated that fibronectin and its peptides also have neuroprotective effects in the CNS. We have therefore examined the neuroprotective effects of fibronectin applied to a spinal cord(More)
T here are key differences in the extent to which the peripheral (PNS) and central (CNS) nervous systems recover function following damage. In each case there is a balance between factors that inhibit and promote neuronal regeneration. In the CNS this balance is skewed toward inhibition while in the PNS it is skewed towards promotion of neuronal growth.(More)
