Understanding how the vertebrate central nervous system develops and functions is a major goal of a large body of biological research. This research is driven both by intellectual curiosity about this amazing organ that coordinates our conscious and unconscious bodily processes, perceptions and actions and by the practical desire to develop effective treatments for people with spinal cord injuries or neurological diseases. In recent years, we have learnt an impressive amount about how the nerve… CONTINUE READING
