Embryonic neural stem cells transplanted into damaged areas of the visual cortex of adult mice were able to differentiate into pyramidal cells, forming normal synaptic connections, responding to visual stimuli, and integrating into neural networks, researchers at LMU Munich, the Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology in Martinsriedand the Helmholtz Zentrum München have demonstrated.
The adult human brain has very little ability to…read more
