    'We found that application of CPTX improved the mice's memory performance.'
    But the greatest impact in spinal cord injury where motor function was restored for at least seven to eight weeks following a single injection into the site of injury.

    Sounds pretty good. Anyone have any other information on this?

      You could spill some chocolate milk on a paralyzed mouse and it'll start walking in seven to eight weeks. I don't mean to take away from the research they are doing. It's great and I'm thankful for it. I just don't get overly hyped anymore when mice start walking again from something. Apples to oranges.

        Point taken, but that's why they show the results against animals that didn't receive the treatment so you can see the difference.

          I'd try it However I don't understand what the different groups are without reading the paper.

              We are far off from application in humans.
              The research is promising, but they will need 15-20 years to start trying in humans, if they even reach that point.
