It is possible for neurons to recover if the pressure applied to a neuron is released within a few hours.
True or false ?

From one of my books:

Effects of Pressure on Neurons

Neurons generally have a limited capacity to regenerate. For most neurons, cell division stops at birth. Although the whole neuron cannot be replaced if damaged, it's possible for the dendrites and axons to regenerate if the cell body is intact. If pressure is applied to the axon of a neuron, the lack of oxygen and blood supply reduces its ability to conduct. If pressure is released after a few hours, the neurons recover in a few weeks.
