Stimulating research could be moving for people with spinal cord injuries


Using physical therapy combined with a noninvasive method of stimulating nerve cells in the spinal cord, researchers from the Center for Neurotechnology at the University of Washington helped six Seattle area participants regain some hand and arm mobility. That increased mobility lasted at least three to six months after treatment had ended. http://centerforneurotech.org/‚Äč
