Can this research help Scientist learn how to repair connections in the brain?

I wish I could speak with the authors of this research. I want more information.
If they can repair neurons and synapses. If they could get rid of excess white matter that causes problems between between synapses and neurons. Can they eventually cure autism, MS, Alzheimer's and more?
Read about it here.

It sounds like it could lead to that, but I think it'll be quite awhile yet before it would be approved.

I found a little more detail, and a link that will offer the full text of the paper in a pay per view format in the future.
The first link is the more detailed article, and the second is the pay per view site.

The institution is: The University of Texas Arlington

And the researchers are: Samarendra Mohanty, Argha Mondal, Bryan Black, and Young-tae Kim.

I think a lot of Americans are starting to wake up from their party stupor.
I see there's going to be some big march against corruption in early November.

Happy Sunday Philosopher.

Happy Sunday Karven.
I hope this week will bring us more information about this. God bless America and the good folks here and on Earth.
I pray for more cures and punishment for the corrupt and evil people. Who promote corruption, exploration and ignorance. I pray for the destruction of those who come here to destroy our American Democracy. I pray for punishement of the corrupt Politicans. We should expose them before all American citizens.

I have been thinking about this a great deal. It they receive funding this has amazing potential.
My dream is for my son to be able to care for himself.

Thanks for the link.
When I saw this name (Dr. Samarendra Mohanty) in the other article, I thought it was a woman.

I read the Kurtwell link last night. I found more at the University site as well. I have that on my ipad. The pad is pain because many times it will not let me foward links to save them.
LOL, I left out the second link it when I posted.

I planned to look more tomorow when I am awake. I am sleepy now.Yes things take time. What is upsetting is I rarely receive updates.
Thank you Karven.
