Stem Cells Replace Defective Brain Cells

Researchers in Jerusalem have successfully utilized stem cells to replace defective brain cells in animals to reverse brain birth defects. This discovery suggests the power of stem cells to treat various learning disabilities that ultimately lead to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. Dr. Yanai and his colleagues intend to present findings from their study that detail the ability of embryonic neural stem cells to migrate to the brain and differentiate to replace defective brain cells in mice.
