The concept of regenerating the nervous system is not a new one- one hundred years ago, in 1913, Santiago Ramón y Cajal established the central dogma of the emerging field of neuroscience: “In the adult centres, the nerve paths are something fixed, ended, and immutable.” Cajal himself speculated whether the science of the future would ever be able to reverse this “harsh decree”. It is the aim of Regenerative Neurology to do so.Regenerative Medicine aims to replenish or replace damaged or abnormal cells, organs and tissues to establish normal function. Regenerative Neurology is the application of these principles in the context of neurological disease- its application may take many forms, including: implantation-based techniques; “self-repair” therapies and generation of diseased tissue models. These three concepts will likely form the basis of the future of Regenerative Neurology. In this essay the current progress and the trajectories they may follow in the future will be explored.
