Stem Cells Used to Reverse Brain Birth Defects

Scientists at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem recently presented findings from a study conducted in mice that suggest the potential for stem cells to repair brain damage. In the United States, learning disabilities and other neural birth defects are common and hard to combat. Embryonic neural stem cells have the ability to differentiate to become particular cells that can reverse the damage. The results from stem cell transplantation in animal models show almost a 100% recovery rate from learning disabilities in the offspring of pregnant mice.
