The Paralyzed Rat That Walked

More than fifty thousand people around the world suffer from spinal cord injuries every year. For them and countless others who have already suffered from the ravages of such injuries, this talk by Gregoire Courtine offers hope. Here is a new approach that shows clear results in rats. Instead of trying to focus on the place of break, this new approach seeks to revitalize the healthy but disabled portion of the spine. It then waits for the brain to magically reconnect back! Miraculously this approach seems to be working and could be an entirely new way of dealing with spinal injuries. More work needs to be done to expand this to humans. That is why MyLifeYoga is highlighting it here, and if you are excited about this new development we hope you will take the time to spread the word.
