This book presents a thorough and up-to-date compilation by experts in the field of the incredibly complex facets of central nervous system (CNS) regeneration research focused on mammalian models and mechanisms. It also incorporates and discusses nonmammalian systems (fish and amphibians) and their relevance in advancing our understanding of axonal growth and functional recovery in the mammalian spinal cord with the ultimate goal to develop better therapeutic strategies for the management of spinal cord injury in humans.
