So Kathe and team modeled the process in mice and used a combination of RNA sequencing and spatial transcriptomics – a technique that allows scientists to measure and map gene activity in specific tissues – to understand which cells were doing what.

They identified a single population of previously unknown neurons that can step up to take over after an injury, found within the intermediate laminae of the lumbar spinal cord.

This tissue, made up of cells called SCVsx2::Hoxa10 neurons, don't appear to be needed for walking in healthy animals, but they seem to be essential for recovering after a spinal injury, as destroying them prevented mice from recovering. Their recruitment is, however, activity dependent.

would be helpful if you also post something to qualify the legitimacy/rigor of the news reports you post

Look man I don’t have a personal issue with you or anything but this constant contrarian trolling shtick that you have is really tiring and it isn’t something to where anybody is taking you seriously or anything so I don’t see what you get out of it. Obviously do whatever you want nobody cares it’s a dying Internet forum but a little self-awareness would do you well here

honestly not trying to be contrarian here, but is it too much to suggest that we introduce some low bar of credibility into a thread dedicated to science?

you were clearly capable of easily researching its credibility on your own. also, no amount of credibility is going to matter to a person that would read one article about a topic and consider themselves informed.

most of my science videos are PBS eons, space time, or lectures on geology

this one is pretty interesting. just happens to be what i'm going through now :o cool what you can learn these days about the timing of mountain uplift



the tetons have moved upwards a maximum of 3.1 km (~10,000') over the past 10 million years. total movement on the teton fault is something like 12 km. just huge :bowdown:

oh, and the yellowstone hotspot has obliterated the northern portion of the teton mountains, since the mountains have been rising for 10 Ma and the hotspot blew through over the last 2 Ma

RIP northern Tetons

This is a truly remarkable and incredibly significant study. It demonstrates that after death, cells in mammalian organs (including humans) such as the brain do not die for many hours. This is well into the post-mortem period," Dr. Sam Parnia, an associate professor of critical care medicine and director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, told the Science Media Centre in London.

Located approximately 3 billion light-years from Earth, the mysterious structure appears to be a large cluster of galaxies drawn together by a shared center of gravity. Using observations from the VVV Survey — a survey that studies the Milky Way's central bulge at infrared wavelengths using the Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy in Chile — the study authors found evidence of at least 58 galaxies bundled together in a small plot of the zone of avoidance.

I have a great referral.
It comes out every year, and deals in a wide range of science, breakthroughs, and technology.
