In this we will review the consequences of traumatic injury to the brain and spinal cord and the regenerative strategies that are being pursued to overcome the tissue degeneration that ensues. This begins with a discussion of the epidemiology and pathogenesis of traumatic injury and is followed by a discussion of the challenges associated with promoting regeneration and limiting degeneration. Strategies for treatment are described; approaches aimed at achieving functional recovery after traumatic central nervous system (CNS) injury. This concludes with an outlook on research dedicated to future treatment strategies.
