Repair nerves using lasers

[From
the article
: In their study published today, Tuesday 20 September, in IOP
Publishing’s journal Biofabrication, researchers used lasers to create
intricate scaffolds, with features one thousand times smaller than a
millimetre, and demonstrated their ability to effectively harness the growth of
neuronal cells. The repairing of neural tissue – for example peripheral nerves,
spinal cord and the brain – has long been investigated using a technique known
as tissue engineering and is now becoming a realistic treatment as technology
advances.]
