"Getting at the precise mechanisms of what happens after axon damage has been really challenging," says Anne Marion Taylor, PhD, an assistant professor in the UNC/NC State Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering. "But we think we've finally figured out a key part of what happens and why." In a Nature Communications paper, Taylor and colleagues have revealed new molecular details of axotomy - when neurons are damaged or completely severed.
