Novel Approach to Reconstruct Neuronal Circuits after Spinal Cord Injury and Brain Diseases

Research Project Outline

Although innovations in neuronal stem cell science are amaz-ing, neuronal cell transplantation techniques are still unsatis-factory. This is partly because of insuffi cient 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 sub-stances, which can be arranged in the putative neuronal cir-cuites in the host tissues suffering from spinal cord injury or brain diseases.
