The regenerative properties of Gecko tails could help heal spinal cord injuries

Scientists at the University of Guelph in Canada have discovered that the Gecko tail—which also includes part of its spinal cord—contains a specific type of stem cell that rapidly proliferates and churns out proteins in response to injury. These proteins generate a new spinal cord. This discovery could help heal spinal cord injuries in humans.
