Introduction spinal cord injury (sci) is a low-incidence, high cost disability sci requires tremendous change in an individual's lifestyle 10,000 new cases in the usa each year. Spinal cord injury is a devastating disease which disrupts the connections between the brain and spinal cord, often resulting in the loss of sensory and motor function below the lesion site most injured neurons fail to regenerate in the central nervous system after injury. These insights are important for understanding the mechanisms of injury and regeneration that may one day be applied to develop potential treatments for spinal cord injury. Regeneration in the injured spinal cord is a goal for investigators studying spinal cord lesions even though regeneration may not always be beneficial to the patient sprouting of primary afferents has been associated with clinical problems such as muscle spasticity and urinary bladder dyssynergia ( 17, 49 . So far, nerve fibers regrowing in experimental animal models of spinal cord regeneration have developed few new synapses, and this may be the limiting factor in recovery of movement understanding how synapses develop may reveal whether spinal regeneration stops because regenerating axons lack the ability to form synapses or whether nerve cells.

These insights are important for understanding the mechanisms of injury and regeneration that may one day be applied to develop potential treatments for spinal cord injury neurons send signals to each other through long projections called axons. Spinal cord injury studies frequently avoid complete spinal cord transection: while it is the gold standard to provide evidence of axonal regeneration, it is extremely difficult to overcome the barriers of reactive glia, inhibitory extracellular matrix, and inhibitory adult white matter to achieve axonal regeneration beyond the lesion.
