This grant will support research to enhance regeneration of the central nervous system (CNS) by inactivating neurons' response to certain growth inhibiting signals. Drawing upon similar research successfully done in the optic nerves of laboratory rats, they will attempt to perform similar experiments on the injured spinal cord.
