  • Recovery from spinal cord injuries can be predicted

    A trauma to the spinal cord, quickly leads to a progressive loss of nerve tissue. This not only affects the injured area, but over time affects also other parts of the spinal cord and even the brain. These neurodegenerative changes can be explored in detail using magnetic resonance imaging. An inter more

  • Human neural stem cell grafts used to repair spinal cord injuries in monkeys

    Led by researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, a diverse team of neuroscientists and surgeons successfully grafted human neural progenitor cells into rhesus monkeys with spinal cord injuries. The grafts not only survived, but grew hundreds of thousands of human axons an more

  • Watching myelin patterns form

    Nerve fibers are surrounded by a myelin sheath. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now made the first-ever “live” observations of how this protective layer is formed. The team discovered that the characteristic patterns of the myelin layer are determined at an early stage. H more

Myelin Myelin is an electrically-insulating phospholipid layer that surrounds the axon s of many neuron s. It is an outgrowth of glial cell s: Schwann cell s supply the myelin for peripheral neurons, whereas oligodendrocyte s supply it to tho ... more
