AbstractIn the peripheral nervous system (PNS), aging is associated with a number of disorders, including a decline in regenerative capacity after injury. Although this decline has been observed in both rodents and humans for decades, the cellular and molecular underpinnings of this defect have remained elusive. As such, the goal of this thesis was to elucidate, at least in part, how aging impinges on axonal regeneration.
