Two Psychology Department graduate students (Josh Britt and Jackie Kane) and two Psychology professors (Drs. Francisco Gonzalez-Lima and Tim Schallert) are key collaborators and co-authors of a study that offers hope for a cure for paralysis. This exciting new research, led by Dr. George Bittner, a professor of Neurobiology, has been accepted for publication in theJournal of Neuroscience Research. An early view of the paper, titled "Rapid, Effective, and Long-Lasting Behavioral Recovery Produced by Microsutures, Methylene Blue, and Polyethylene Glycol After Completely Cutting Rat Sciatic Nerves" is now available. Read full study | "New surgery heals nerve damage in weeks" | Watch Video feature on
