Common Drug Gabapentin Restores Limb Function After Spinal Cord Injury in Mouse Study

In one of the mouse models for this research, one side of the descending spinal pathway is damaged (above right) while the other side (above left) remains intact. In this image, bright streaks on the right show that in mice treated with gabapentin, descending motor axons are able to sprout to send nerve impulses to the denervated part of the spinal cord – a key step in rebuilding the central nervous system after injury.
