The article reports on the molecular revolution of the Center for Neuroscience and Regeneration Research (CNRR) for the cure of spinal-cord injury (SCI). The CNRR is a renowned pioneering research in demonstrating the underlying molecular basis for recovery of neurological function observed in SCI cases, the exposure of destructive chemical that lead to degeneration and death of axons, and reveals the reasons why SCI causes pain in some people.
