For years, researchers seeking new therapies for traumatic brain injury have been tantalized by the results of animal experiments with stem cells.
Recent studies give hope for patients with the irreversible disease known as MS or multiple sclerosis by possibly reversing the aging effects of the central nervous system.
In the images of fruit flies, clusters of neurons are all lit up, forming a brightly glowing network of highways within the brain.
New research highlights the possibility of reversing ageing in the central nervous system for multiple sclerosis (MS) patients.
Scientists at Joslin Diabetes Center, Harvard University, and the University of Cambridge have found that the age-related impairment of the body's ability to replace protective myelin sheaths, which normally surround nerve fibers and allow them to send signals properly, may be reversible, offering new hope that therapeutic strategies aimed at restoring efficient regeneration can be effective in the central nervous system throughout life.

Biologists at the University of California, San Diego have identified more than 70 genes that play a role in regenerating nerves after injury, providing biomedical researchers with a valuable set of genetic leads for use in developing therapies to repair spinal cord injuries and other common kinds of nerve damage such as stroke.
