Research Themes Novel approach to reconstruct neuronal circuits after spinal cord injury and brain diseases


Although innovations in neuronal stem cell science are amazing, neuronal cell transplantation techniques are still unsatisfactory. This is partly because of insufficient neurite outgrowth of grafted neurons in the host tissues. We develop a method to encourage neurite extension in damaged neuronal tissues by utilizing cell adhesion molecules-bound magnetic substances, which can be arranged in the putative neuronal circuites in the host tissues suffering from spinal cord injury or brain diseases.
