Abstract

The study of spinal cord regeneration in the phylogenetic scale is likely to help us in the understanding of the problem in the human situation. After spinal transection in lizards, histological changes in the spinal cord were studied and correlated with functional recovery. Some changes in spinal cord, suggestive of regeneration between the two stumps were observed. The recovery of function did not appear to be dependent on synaptic continuity.
