    (Source: SFN/Miguel Nicolelis)There may be hope to get millions of individuals with chronic spinal cord injury (SCI) moving again, according to research presented at a press conference at Neuroscience 2014, the 44th annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (SFN) in Washington, D.C.
    Spinal cord injury often causes paralysis below the level of injury, and, as their injury becomes chronic, patients can suffer from secondary ailments such as urinary tract infections, respiratory issues and depression. There is no cure for SCI, so the new research? which includes a brain-machine interface that helps paralyzed patients walk again? is welcome news for those in need of a better quality of life.
    ?In some parts of the world, a spinal cord injury is a sentence of death,? said moderator Oswald Stewart, Ph.D., of the University of California, Irvine. ?People with spinal cord injuries continue to live with various disabilities, ranging from the inability to walk, inability to use one?s hands, inability to breathe? and these are huge impacts on quality of life. Especially the loss of breathing ability.?
