Axonal Regeneration in the Central Nervous System of Mammals
This chapter discusses axonal regeneration in the adult mammalian central nervous system (CNS). In contrast to the situation in the peripheral nervous system (PNS), where injured axons often regenerate successfully over long distances, axonal regeneration is minimal or absent in the adult mammalian CNS. Therefore, CNS trauma often results in severe and permanent deficits.
