Central nervous system regeneration does not occur L S Illis1 1Willow Pond House, Lymore Valley, Hampshire, UK Abstract Objectives: To examine the state of research in central nervous system (CNS) regeneration and to suggest an alternative to the sterile research at the lesion site. Setting: Worldwide. Methods: A search of publications using ‘PubMed’ and a search of the historical literature relevant to CNS regeneration, biological models, the neurone theory, collateral sprouting, spinal shock and the central pattern generator. Results: There is no evidence for CNS regeneration. Conclusion: A century of research focussed on the lesion site has been unproductive. An alternative field of research must be developed and the best candidate is the undamaged CNS.
