They recently (within the year) figured out the structure of the protein
that acts as a kind of "scaffolding" that neural tissure requires to

with completely severed spinal cords were walking again after spinal
pinning and "painting" with this protein. After the surgery the cord
reconnected itself and following a recovery period they were ambulatory.
