Experts Provide Insights Into Emerging Field of Brain and Spine Repair

JAMA. 2008;300(9):1013-1014. doi:10.1001/jama.300.9.1013

The discovery that new brain cells are created in some regions of the adult brain challenged long-held dogma and inspired many scientists to explore the regenerative capacity of the central nervous system (Eriksson PS et al. Nat Med. 1998:4[11]:1313-1317). As the body of research on neural repair grows, scientists are developing a better understanding of the potential and limits of this regenerative capacity and investigating how it might be harnessed for therapeutic purposes.
