Article help

Post by johnleno » Wed Apr 13, 2011 10:46 pm

Hello everyone,

I am trying to understand this article for an upcoming exam and I have no clue how to digest it. I understand some information, including the intro, discussion and some results and methods, but when it comes to results I am so lost. Can anybody help me please? This is where I uploaded my pdf article http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LK3ETVG3 because it won't allow me to upload it here.

Thank you

Honestly from what I can see it just demonstrate what it say in each paragraph with a title and lay out the results that allow them to go to each conclusion. ie that they manage to transform the stem cells in myelinated neurons, and that they can help heal spine injury if transplanted shortly after injury.

In fact i can say that if the style may not be great, the authors are quite clear about all what they do and what conclusions can be drawn from each set of experiment. i know nothing about the subject and have to believe that they are doing significant tests, but it seems that the conclusions are clearly laid out, and that if one want to know more it would not require massive research to confirm (or infirm) their conclusions.

If you need more help, you will need to be more precise about what you do not understand.
