Researchers in Oregon have completed groundbreaking research investigating brain injury reversal in newborns. In the team’s study, published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, scientists identified a specific molecule in the brain’s white matter that inhibits the brain’s ability to repair itself after injury. “By preventing the production of this molecule, we can create an effective pathway to allow the brain to continue its regenerative process…,” said Stephen Back, M.D., Ph.D., of Oregon Health and Science University. Their findings may create opportunities for further research and targeted therapies for people with conditions such as cerebral palsy, and may help limit long-term physical and mental disabilities.
