When the spinal cord is damaged, the connection between the brain and some part of the body may be lost.

To restore this connection, some research are carried out, with mainly two different goals :

-Repairing the damages so that the spinal cord works again.

-Bypassing the spinal cord by connecting directly the brain to the paralyzed part of the body (thanks to implants in the brain connected to electrodes in the muscles).

My question is : is there any attempt to bypass only the damaged part of the spinal cord ?

This question is poorly worded and hard to answer as it stands. Consider restating more clearly what you are asking. –  V_ix Mar 26 at 3:19
