Injured adult motor and sensory axons regenerate into appropriate organotypic domains of neural progenitor grafts

Neural progenitor cell (NPC) transplantation has high therapeutic potential in neurological disorders. Functional restoration may depend on the formation of reciprocal connections between host and graft. While it has been reported that axons extending out of neural grafts in the … Continue reading
