Hope for Spinal Cord Injuries:Coaxed damaged nerve cells to grow and send messages to the brain again.

What’s more, the new neurons make organized connections with their counterparts inside the spinal cord and brain stem, ensuring information from the outside world paints an accurate picture inside the brain.
