Do axon grows after cutting of some of its part to near original place?

Do axon restores after local damaging of some of its part?

I take https://class.coursera.org/neurobio-001/ classes and learn that axons are very long. So it is interesting if they able to restore connection to far places parts of body...

yes they do.. I'll post a long answer when i get time.. meanwhile you can look for Axonal regeneration. (A lot of experiments have been performed on regeneration of sciatic nerve and DRG neurons) –  WYSIWYG May 23 at 2:24
