During development, a neuron transitions from a state of rapid growth to a stable morphology, and neurons within the adult mammalian CNS lose their ability to effectively regenerate in response to injury. Here, we identify a novel form of neuronal regeneration, which is remarkably independent of DLK-1/DLK, KGB-1/JNK, and other MAPK signaling factors known(More)
Large numbers of people suffer from nervous system injuries and neurodegenerative diseases each year, with little success in regaining lost neural functions. Attempts to successfully regenerate nervous tissue in the mammalian Central Nervous System have meet with limited success. Simpler models have thus been useful in determining conserved mechanisms in(More)
