The use of stem cells for neuroreplacement therapy is no longer science fiction - it is science fact. We have succeeded in producing neural cells in the brain using both neural and mesenchymal stem cell transplantation and even systemic injection using a small molecular compound. We have seen the improvement of cognitive function in animal models following the application of these stem cell technologies. These results may promise a bright future for stem cell based neuroreplacement therapies… CONTINUE READING
