As reported in Science (the journal) a group of individuals in Switzerland have found a way to give hope to people with spine injuries.
They used a combination of drugs and electrical stimulation coupled with hard work and rats that had a partially severed spinal column.
The rats eventually were not only able to walk again but also to run and climb stairs.
This is an amazing bit of research!!
I am a scientist at the University of Michigan and when I read this I got goosebumps.
What hope this holds out for those folks with these kinds of injuries!!
OK off my soapbox now.
Go to this link and watch the amazing video and read a short article about it.
