Identified a new repairing mechanism of the peripheral nervous system by applyting bioengineering techniques Blog Post

A research group at the Institute of Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) at the Barcelona Science Park has applied a new light-stimulated technique to modulate muscular activity and stimulate cell regeneration of the peripheral nervous system. Thanks to this research, published in Cells, the scientists have discovered that muscle activity can activate the neurons and accelerate their regeneration after an injury.
