Grégoire Courtine: Le rat paralysé qui marcha
14:23 · Filmed June 2013 at TEDGlobal 2013 · Subtitles available in 26 languages

Un traumatisme de la moelle épinière peut affecter la communication entre le cerveau et le corps, débouchant sur la paralysie. Tout droit sorti de son laboratoire, Grégoire Courtine nous montre une nouvelle méthode — mélangeant les médicaments, la stimulation électrique et un robot — qui pourrait réveiller les chemins neuronaux et aider le corps à réapprendre à bouger tout seul. Voyez comment cela fonctionne, quand un rat paralysé redevient capable de courir et de monter des escaliers.
