Researchers restore injured man's sense of touch using brain-computer interface technology posted Monday, 27 April 2020
Researchers have been able to restore sensation to the hand of a research participant with a severe spinal cord injury using a brain-computer interface (BCI) system. The technology harnesses neural signals that are so minuscule they can't be perceived and enhances them via artificial sensory feedback sent back to the participant, resulting in greatly enriched motor function...

HGH Found to Promote Recovery from Spinal Damage posted Monday, 14 October 2019
Researchers have found that human growth hormone (HGH) treatment, combined with physical therapy, can help to speed up recovery in people suffering from spinal damage. It was found in the study, which was presented at the European Congress of Endocrinology held in Portugal, that the substance produced by the pituitary gland helped to significantly enhance sensory function in patients suffering from complete spinal injuries...
