Plasticity following injury to the adult central nervous system: is recapitulation of a developmental state worth promoting?


The adult central nervous system (CNS) appears to initiate a transient increase in plasticity following injury, including increases in growth-related proteins and generation of new cells. Recent evidence is reviewed that the injured adult CNS exhibits events and patterns of gene expression that are also observed during development and during regeneration… (More)
