Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Researchers Find Immune Cells Help Rebuild Damaged Nerves

Immune cells are normally associated with fighting infection but in a new study, scientists have discovered how they also help the nervous system clear debris, clearing the way for nerve regeneration after injury. In a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, researchers from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine showed certain immune cells--neutrophils--can clean up nerve debris, while previous models have attributed nerve cell damage control to other cells entirely.
