    How do neurons respond to injury? (Pick 2)
    • A. 

      When damage occurs in premature regions of the CNS, Those cells automatically repoduce and are replaced

      When damage occurs in mature regions of the CNS, that are made up mostly of cell bodies, those cells die and can’t be replaced

    • C. 

      If damage occurs primarily to axons, it is possible for processes to occur that can restore and regenerate connections (current focus of research: how to manipulate things in the brain to enhance this)
