WHS Session D: Central and Peripheral Nervous System Contribution to the Injury Response

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Wound healing is a tremendous challenge for systems biologists because on one hand, the injury is local but on the other, the response is systemic. In addition to the trafficking of inflammatory (and anti inflammatory cells) in the wound bed, the central and peripheral nervous systems (CNS and PNS) can participate in the repair and regenerative response. This session will review the mechanisms of CNS involvement in injury, current concepts governing the efferent and afferent pathways affected by wounding and the role played by neuro-inflammation.
