Scientists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison were able to prove that nerve cells under certain conditions, include the recovery processes and can regenerate. With the help of specially created the drug in injured neurons, failed to activate the axons that transmit electrical impulses. As a result of nerve cell was again included in the circuit.
While on the possible use of funds for people with neurodegenerative disease early to say. However, the discovery of its potential to turn the field of neurology in medicine. Now there is no really effective medication in reducing nerve cells in patients with diseases of the spinal cord and brain.
Further study of the properties of the drug will allow to identify all the aspects of his actions. While scientists know that the drug provokes the effect of Charcot-Marie-tooth. This condition is characterized by loss of control of movement and movement in space.
