A study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reports that researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have discovered that cats can regenerate damaged myelin (fatty nerve fibre insulator) in their brains, indicating that the central nervous system can repair itself. The discovery was made after a number of pregnant cats suffered neurological damage after eating irradiated food – after being taken off the diet the cats slowly recovered, and tests showed that myelin had re-coated the nerves.  It gives hope for myelin therapies for people with severe neurological diseases.
