This week, Lab.Equipment has sourced a new Bio Technology article published from Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News (GEN):

Repairing neurological damage has never been an easy task for scientists and physicians but remains the ultimate goal for much of the research in neuroscience. For instance, transplanting neuronal stem cells into damaged or diseased areas of the brain has been touted as a potential therapeutic option, although it has been met with some difficulties. Yet now, investigators at Lund University in Sweden may have just found a path forward for using induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell-derived cortical neurons for treating stroke-afflicted rats.

Findings from the new study—published in PNAS through an article entitled “Activity in grafted human iPS cell–derived cortical neurons integrated in stroke-injured rat brain regulates motor behavior“—showed that the approach was able to restore mobility and sensation of touch by reprogramming human skin cells...
