Abstract

The damaged spinal cord has only a limited capacity for anatomical and functional recovery. However, a growing body of experimental work is demonstrating a potential for enhanced axonal regeneration and recovery following injury. Important pathophysiologic processes are discussed, along with strategies designed to improve outcome through the reconstruction of damaged pathways and the modulation of the spinal cord's response to the primary injury.
