Neuroregeneration: Restoring Function through Repair of Damaged Neurons in the CNS
Neuroregeneration refers to the process by which damaged or dead neurons in the central nervous system (CNS) are replaced or repaired, leading to the restoration of function in affected individuals. This process has been the subject of intense research over the past few decades and has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of a wide range of neurological disorders. The CNS is composed of the brain and the spinal cord, which are responsible for controlling a wide range of bodily functions, including movement, sensation, and cognition. Neurons are the building blocks of the CNS, and they communicate with each other through a complex network of electrical and chemical signals. When neurons are damaged or destroyed due to injury or disease, this communication is disrupted, leading to a loss of function and potentially irreversible damage.
