    The beta amyloid (Aβ) and other aggregating proteins in the brain increase with age and are frequently found within neurons.

Consequently, functional deficits persist after spinal cord injury (SCI), traumatic brain injury, stroke, and related conditions that involve axonal disconnection. This situation differs from that in the mammalian peripheral nervous system (PNS), where long- distance axon regeneration and substantial ...
