Adhesive/repulsive properties in the injured spinal cord: relation to myelin phagocytosis by invading macrophages.

Abstract

The vigorous ingrowth of cut CNS axons into peripheral nerve grafts indicates that the lack of neuronal regeneration within the brain and spinal cord cannot be explained merely by CNS neurons having an inherent weak regenerative capacity. Rather, the brain and spinal cord seem to contain molecules that inhibit axonal growth and, indeed, oligodendrocyte… (More)
