    Hi guys! Finally got my computer back.

    AI Discovery Could Improve Treatment of Spinal Cord Injuries
    Acombination of AI and robotics might help people recover from spinal cord injuries. A Rutgers-led team has used the technology to stabilize an enzyme, Chondroitinase ABC (ChABC), that can degrade scar tissue from spinal cord injuries and encourage tissue regeneration. Where the enzyme only lasted for a few hours at body temperatures, it now lasts over a week — enough to have a more substantial effect.

      A research team led by scientists from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has developed an innovative technology for in vivo imaging of the important biological processes involved in the injury and repair of spinal cords, paving the way for a better understanding of the pathology and potential treatment of spinal cord injury (SCI).

      A tight bundle of neural cells (neurons and glia) and nerve pathways (axons), the spinal cord serves as a primary information highway between the brain and the peripheral nerves in the rest of our body. Damage to the spinal cord is a devastating and largely irreversible neurological trauma, and can result in lifelong disability and paralysis with no available cure.

      "This has not been done before": Clinical trials on Long Island help spinal cord injury patients regain some movement

      MANHASSET, N.Y. -- There is no cure for paralysis, but some spinal cord injury patients on Long Island are calling their personal feats miracles.

      As part of a clinical trial at Feinstein Institutes, they were attached to electrode stimulation and regained some movement in their hands and arms.

      Researchers tell CBS2's Jennifer McLogan this has never been done before.

      Sharon Laudisi was the victim of a serious car crash last year.

      "My life ended that day, or at least I thought it did," she said. "Depression sank in, like, the day that I realized I couldn't move it."
