Rate this:
This edition of Science Screen Report looks at the design and function of the spinal cord, how damage to the cord affects body movement, and medical advances used in treating spinal cord injuries. After outlining the components of the spine and central nervous system, the program portrays studies and experiments ranging from a high-tech muscle stimulation therapy to the development of nerve-regenerating computer chips that can be implanted directly in the spine. This is an effective presentation of principal concerns in neurology, and of the worldwide effort to understand paralysis and find a cure.
