“You get what you put in.” Aya Takeoka about her life as a neuroscientist and her current project.
An experimental gene therapy allows the restoration of lost stepping ability by targeting an internal spinal cord circuit.
All at the same time, in sunshine or rain, at day or night – we pulled off the largest running event in history together and achieved something amazingly beautiful in the process.
Are you ready for the biggest App Run ever? It's really important to us that you’ll have a great running experience and that everything works flawlessly on race day, so here comes your checklist.
When runners in Australia set off with headlamps in the late evening while Austrians head out in the midday sun, you know that something truly special is happening: the Wings for Life World Run.
Our Scientific Meeting is held every year in spring. This is where the Who’s Who of spinal cord research meets and exchanges ideas – this year via a virtual platform.
Whenever the elite of spinal cord research convenes, you know it is time for our annual scientific meeting. This year’s format is a premiere.
Gene therapy can force glial cells to convert into functional neurons. This technique could potentially result in interventions to restore lost neural functions after injury.
Gabapentin is often prescribed for neurological diseases. An experimental study suggests that when given early after spinal cord injury, it can also limit harmful structural changes in nerve cells.
Blood chemistry parameters can predict the recovery that patients with incomplete spinal cord injuries will have one year later. This important finding was made by researchers from Salzburg.
White blood cell fluctuations predict outcomes of spinal cord injury. New scientific findings could help current patient management and establishment of future treatments.
By using gene therapy, a German research team forced nerve cells to produce a curative protein. Mice that had complete injury could walk again after two to three weeks.
