  • OBJECTIVE:The lack of meaningful axon regeneration after central nervous system damage and poor functional recovery after serious peripheral nervous system nerve injuries have been long-standing problems of substantial interest to both neurosurgeons and neurobiologists. As an alternative to strategies that seek to promote the regeneration of adult axons, our research group has taken advantage of advances in microtechnology to develop a paradigm of direct axon repair involving the substitution… CONTINUE READING
