When nerve fibres in the central nervous system are damaged there is, as yet, no way of reversing this. But research we’ve been doing has led to the discovery of a mechanism for regrowing damaged nerve fibres.<br><br>A new study, published in <a href="">Nature Communications</a>, highlights the role of a protein called PCAF, which seems to successfully trigger a series of chemical and genetic events that allow nerves to regenerate.<br><br><a href="">READ MORE ON THE CONVERSATION</a>
