The adult mammalian CNS is extremely limited in its ability to regenerate axons following injury. Glial scar, neuroinflammatory processes and molecules released from myelin impair axonal regrowth and contribute to the lack of neural regeneration. An in vitro assay that quantitates neurite outgrowth from cultured neurons as a model of neuronal regenerative potential is described. Specifically, the neurite outgrowth from primary neurons (rat cerebellar granule neurons; CGNs) and a neuronal cell… CONTINUE READING
