First international symposium at INT

The first INT symposium entitled « Standing up against paraplegia » aims at gathering specialists of different aspects of spinal cord physiology and spinal cord trauma in order to discuss the best research strategy to establish an implantable electrostimulable neuroprosthesis that promotes axonal regeneration and functional recovery.
