Introducing Simulated Stem Cells into a Bio-Inspired Cell-Cell Communication Mechanism for Structure Regeneration

Abstract

The planarian flatworm has been essential for learning about the regeneration process of organisms. One of the reasons for this exceptional capability is the abundance of adult stem cells, denominated neoblasts, distributed throughout planarian’s body. Its body contains around 20% to 30% of neoblasts. Moreover, experiments in vivo show that irradiated worms… (More)
