    It's nothing official, just trust over exchange of information as a interested patient and investor, I shouldn't of said sighned as I haven't signed anything yet. Just made promises

    The axon may know where to go:

    Scientists Regenerate Nerve Fibers After Spinal Cord Injury

    May 8, 2015 | by Josh L Davis

    "By simulating crushed spines in lab rats, scientists at Tufts University School of Medicinehave been able to show that by treating the breakage with a specific protein already produced by the body, called artemin, they can encourage the damaged nerve fibers to grow an incredible 4 centimeters (1.5 inches). Not only that, after four weeks of treatment, the regenerated neurons were fully capable of passing signals along the whole length."


    "But if you thought that the length of growth was incredible, the news doesn't stop there. Not only have they managed to achieve unprecedented growth from the nerve fibers, but they’ve also gotten them to ‘plug’ themselves back into their original places. So whilst older studies found that when the sensory nerves were regenerated they would often get muddled up and cross each other, when the researchers used artemin, the new nerves were able to find their way back to the right spot and connect up correctly."

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Wow this sounds amazing, if this could prove similar in humans that would be seriously amazing. Maybe one day we will just sit on our asses get an injection and walk in the next few days,no effort required,kind of takes the fight out of it but I'd take it..


    Thanks for providing that, more encouraging research more to learn

    are yes I completely forgot about this, there's just never been any more information I wonder if any progress has been made

    JamesMcM, this is probably another auto connection:

    Adult brain prunes branched connections of new neurons

    LA JOLLA—When tweaking its architecture, the adult brain works like a sculptor—starting with more than it needs so it can carve away the excess to achieve the perfect design. That’s the conclusion of a new study that tracked developing cells in an adult mouse brain in real time……

    When you find the time, can you provide me with some papers or studies that have image evidence of regeneration in completely injured animals and also functional recovery? I'd like to see how their mental rehab guided these axons. Thanks.
