Paralysed patients walk again after breakthrough nerve cell discovery

Scientists have identified a group of nerve cells that helps patients with paralysis stand up and walk again.These nerve cells, or neurons, called Vsx2, are present in the brain stem and the spinal cord and have been found to play a key role in the recovery of motor function after spinal cord injury.The researchers from Switzerland hailed their findings, published in the journal Nature, as a “clinical breakthrough”.Source: JimmyRavier/NeuroRestore
